Open Hyperlinks in Formula Fields Correctly

This critical update addresses an issue opening hyperlinks in formula fields. If you have formula fields that contain a HYPERLINK function, Lightning Experience currently 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 is automatically enabled in Summer ’19 on May 17, 2019.

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

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.
