How to Create Links between Gallery or Form Items

I'm trying to create a knowledge base that uses a SharePoint list as the data source. I am using a form to display my content.

In some of my knowledge articles, I have HTML fields with links to documents on SharePoint or external websites. Is there any way to link directly to other knowledge articles? For example, I want to click on "read more about this subject here" and the hyperlink will direct you to the other item in-app. 

So far, I've tried using Substitute to force the HTML to read Navigate, but that will always add https://us.create.powerapps.com/studio/ before the link. I've tried passing values from the SharePoint list to controls, but that doesn't seem to work either. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: How to Create Links between Gallery or Form Items

Hi @chargoyle ,

I am not sure this is what you want, but you can “deep link” to specific screens or searches in another PowerApp using a URL with parameters and then configuring the target to accept and action these.

 

Have a look at this video from Shane Young on the subject.

Re: How to Create Links between Gallery or Form Items

Hi @chargoyle ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to navigate to other item via clicking the Hyperlink directly?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the Html text control could achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side, please consider take a try with the following workaround:

On your side, you need to replace the URL with the actual knowledge articles link within above Html text control.

 

If you want to navigate to other item in current app via clicking the Hyperlink, please consider modify above formula as below:

"read more about this subject <a href='https://apps.powerapps.com/play/a8bdf1d5-87b2-4be1-8948-86529f53887a?tenantId=9e51064f-xxxx-41a2-xxxx-9785a9d6c706&ID='" & ListItemIDVar & " style='color:blue;'>here</a>"

Note: The 'https://apps.powerapps.com/play/a8bdf1d5-87b2-4be1-8948-86529f53887a?tenantId=9e51064f-xxxx-41a2-xxx...' represents the App URL link of your current app.

Please check and see if the following threads would help in your scenario:

Thank you so much for your reply, @v-xida-msft !

 

Maybe this will help visualize it better:

On the first screen, I have form displaying the content of SharePoint item #1, but there's supporting information in SharePoint item #2. I want to be able to click on the link and navigate in-app to display the contents of item #2.
