Creating a UPS tracking URL in powerapps

I'm working on a powerapp that reads a table of data and allows the users to search the list for previous orders and view the order data. one of the columns is the UPS tracking number. i would like to create a button in the app that launches the UPS tracking URL and appends the tracking number from the tracking number column in the list into the URL. 

 

My button code is: 

Launch("
https://www.ups.com/mobile/track?trackingNumber=")

 

My tracking number is ThisItem.Shipping_Tracking_Number

 

Not sure how to append the value of the tracking number after the = sign int he U

You can simply concatenate the value to the string.

Launch(
    Concatenate("https://www.ups.com/mobile/track?trackingNumber=", ThisItem.Shipping_Tracking_Number)
)

 

You can also shorten the formula to the following:

Launch("https://www.ups.com/mobile/track?trackingNumber=" & ThisItem.Shipping_Tracking_Number)

(preferable) 

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
