Ability to update Sharepoint List URL 'Name' Field from a customized Power App form

Ability to update Sharepoint List URL 'Name' Field from a customized Power App form


Currently when you use a customized Form in PowerApps to update a Sharepoint List with the URL type, it updates both the URL and the 'Name" (also known as descriptive text or Alternative text) with just the URL.  This makes it so the Sharepoint list owner has to go back into the Sharepoint list and change the Name to the correct name.

This limitation has been noted since 2018

update link AND text in Hyperlink field of SharePo... - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

Currently the work around is to use a Power Automate Flow and REST API as noted there, but that seems like over kill for something that should be working from within the Power App itself.
