Currently Power BI only allows standard hyperlinks such as http:// https:// ftp:// file:// etc.

Please either allow for a non-Standard link such as:
“Epicact:ADT_PATIENT_STATION,InfoName:PatientID,InfoValue: ***,InfoCvtID:EPT”


Allow for the creation of dynamic html based columns that function as hyperlinks such as:
Using a calculated column like
HTML Patient Station = ""& Query1[PAT_NAME] & "


This functionality would be extremely useful not only for integration with our Electronic Medical Record, but potential integration with other applications.

Possibly even allow the ability to toggle on or off the functionality in the Admin Portal or at the report level.

RE: Allow for Custom Hyperlinks

Agree this is critically needed, not every valid URL starts with http or https. Allowing a report designer to create URLs that don't begin with standard prefixes would allow better integration with a variety of additional tools.
