RTF control does not work to create hyperlinks to Sharepoint sites?!

Have an support-ticket regarding this matter with ID: 120052924007915 - Powerapps RTF control links not working?

 

I have a Sharepoint list with a column, multiple rows, RTF data enabled.

In my powerapps i have a FORM so i can save and read data from my sharepoint list, my datasource.

The form have a RTF editor control.

 

When a user update a record in the datasource using the RTF editor control and adds any hyperlink to a sharepoint site. The hyperlink is changed and the sharepoint.com part of the URL is replaced.

This leads to that it is impossible to let the user add links to Sharepoint sites or documents.

 

It is however possible to create links to any external sites. Just sharepoint that fails.

 

This has been confirmed on above support-ticket.

Microsoft support is typing as an answer:

After further investigation on the issue, I was able to reproduce the problem and have discussed with the team, also the issue seems to be a known issue with custom form and PowerApps when using the Rich Text Editor.

When using the default form from SharePoint, the link is not altered and is therefore functional. However, once the SharePoint is modified in PowerApps or in a PowerApps application separate from the SharePoint list, the link is altered. The beginning of the SharePoint address “sharepoint.com” is replaced.

 

Posting this here after MS suggested this.

 

Is this considered a bug or a feature?

When will this be changed?

This is definitely a bug. I've been conferring with other developers (MVPs) and they are also stumped by this. If this cannot be worked out, the link functionality should be removed as it hurts user experience of any app using this control.

Thank you

 

I really hope they can fix this.

 

Since the links in the RTF controls works to other domains than Sharepoint, i hope they do not remove the function. I cant find an userfriendly way for the end user to create links and add rich text in Powerapps without this control.

I agree, but in the meantime. I have an app that gets negative feedback because of this issue. Its hard enough to get users to adopt new technology without issues like this so PLEASE Microsoft! Please fix this.
