Problem with app link in report

I’m still struggling to understand how to get the link to open the app and not the browser app and how to get the href working on a link that does OPEN the app.

Both of these expressions opens app in Browser and goes to the correct view.

<a href="https://www.appsheet.com/start/9d40e089-078d-4169-b2a0-

%20only%20for%20Key%20Prayers&page=table">

Goes to app correctly but don't want users to see a link like this.

20for%20Key%20Prayers&page=table
```
How can I get the last one to have a href around it for a nice looking link?

Thanks.

Hi @Lucinda_Mason. Are you saying you want to link to a URL with custom link text? If you’re using an email template (e.g. Google Doc) you can use a HYPERLINK function to create clickable link text. It takes two arguments: the URL to go to and the link text to display.

<<HYPERLINK("https://www.appsheet.com/samples/How-to-link-to-a-URL-with-custom-text?appGuidString=3f55edfc-aa53-47fc-a206-469720f10b13", "Hyperlinks sample app")>>

Thanks Tony for responding. I don’t know all the terminology but I want to hyperlink to the APP not the browser version of the App. Is that possible? Or do I need to use a deep link to open the app, if so, can I wrap it so just a reference appears, not the whole linking text.
