Insert value of one field to URL field

How can i create a link in the URL field using a value from another field of the same record?

I try to create a Whatsapp link from a phone number field like:

https://wa.me/5211234567890

When i put this link manually in URL field and then click the globe icon, whatsapp starts as it should.

I can use a Formula field to create this link, but how to make it launch the Whatsapp app??

    I got it.

    In URL field there is an option Trigger after update.

    I put there

    URL := "https://wa.me/" + Tel

    where Tel is the field containing clients phone number.

  • Hi there! I'm trying something similar, but it wasn't working with my fields, so I thought I'd try using your exact specifications (down to field names, http site, etc.) and it's still not working for me... :-(

     

    Any advice?

    Hello!

    Its because i was not precise in my previous comment.

    I got 2 fields:

    'Tel' and 'WhatsApp'.

    In Tel's options in the Trigger after update field i put 

    WhatsApp := "https://wa.me/" + Tel

    This way it will work.

    If that formula is in WhatsApp's options, it will not work because the WhatsApp fiwld is not updated manualy.

  • Ah ha!! That makes sense. Tried it and it worked... thanks for the response!

    P.S. I came across a similar solution for using a button as the URL field instead. Thought I'd share in case you hadn't seen this :-) https://ninox.com/en/forum/technical-help-5ab8fe445fe2b42b7dd39ee7/can-i-build-a-launchable-url-based-on-other-data-elements-5be7d2fccffb9b0d63355e2a
