Change link text for displayed Ref

I have a Details view with a ref field being displayed like this:
Application Details 12/13/2020 4:43:46 PM
I would like to change the “link text” (ie. the value that is displayed) to be something more user friendly (other than the date time string), something like this:
Application Details View by Clicking Here

You may wish to try/ explore the following which is a more common approach instead of defining a common “link text” for all reference keys. Please define a user friendly field in the parent table as a label. When you do this the label field will be displayed instead of the cryptic key field. In the backend sheet through the parent key will be saved in the child table.

Also, the app shows the link to the referenced record as below
