Open Hyperlinks in Formula Fields Correctly (Previously Released Critical Update)

If you have formula fields that contain a HYPERLINK function, Lightning Experience ignores the target value when attempting to open the link. This critical update ensures that the target value for hyperlinks is honored, whether it’s explicitly configured or set by default. This critical update was first made available in Winter ’19.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience and the Salesforce app in all editions.

When: This critical update is activated automatically in Spring ’20.

How: From Setup, enter Critical Updates in the Quick Find box. Then select Critical Updates. For Lightning Experience Honors Target Values for Hyperlinks in Formula Fields, click Acknowledge.
