How to add a text field where the text is a link via the API

#1

Hi, I’ve figured out how to use the API to add text in a column (https://coda.io/developers/apis/v1beta1#operation/upsertRows) but I’m trying to figure out how I can add a text field that has a link in it. It doesn’t seem to be a documented type in the API docs.

If you insert a URL it should get autodetected and linkified. If you want to override the display text, at this time you’ll need to use three columns: one containing the URL, a second containing the display text, and a third formulaic one with a formula like Hyperlink(URL, [Display Text]).
