Conditional column formatting to create hyperlink to different sites based on item value

New Contributor

Hello, 

As in the subject- I would like to create hyperlinks to different sites under one column depending on the text value for the item on the list/library under that column. So for example item 1 is having value "X" under column "Y" and I want "X" to be hyperlinked to site "A", if the value of the item is "Z" I want hyperlink to site "Z" etc. Would someone be so nice and give an example?

Based on what I understood from your question, you need to use JSON in below format:

 

{
    "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column-formatting.schema.json",
    "elmType": "a",
    "txtContent": "@currentField",
    "attributes": {
        "href": "=if(@currentField == 'X', 'https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/A', if(@currentField == 'Z', 'https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/Z', 'https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/default'))",
        "target": "_blank"
    }
}

 

Add this code to column "Y" by selecting "Format this column" settings.

I am trying to do something similar, but with one additional twist:

I have two Sharepoint lists: "Projects" and "Items". Each project will have multiple items associated to it. So, imagine project "Ice Cream" has items ["Buy Ice Cream", "Eat Ice Cream", "Take Nap"]. All three of the items have a column called Master_ID which is populated with the Sharepoint ID of the parent project.

I would like to be able to click on the Project ID# and have it link to the Item list, but with the view filtered to show only the corresponding Items (Filter Master_ID).

I'm not a programmer, so I'm hoping someone can help me get my brain around it.

Thanks in advance!
