Hi @Demetrius_Bolduc , as @Piet_Strydom said that one should be a link to an external object, in this case a table or a row, but it is an “active” link, meaning that if you hover upon it you should get a preview of the object.
I would say that if you need those functions of being a “smart” field you could try to move your content inside a row and then link that one in the field (using a formula for dynamic use or a link for a static one)
In alternative, i would use this case as a suggestion for improving the cards layouts for the future, directed to @coda-team (), and the next question off course is “How would you use this feature?” or “How this feature could help you and other users to improve their docs?”
My personal answer is that i’m waiting for the new layout possibilites (ex. multi column dashboards, more design possibilities etc) and then i’ll understand how to properly design my User Interfaces
A fast suggestion would also be: did you tried the conditional formatting for fields? Those options add a little bit of colour and style to your cards (and others)
