Turn a Salesforce Hyperlink into a Button:


If you're using Salesforce and have a Hyperlink that uses formula fields, you can make it stand out as an action by converting it into a Salesforce button. Here is what you need to do: 


  1. Create an image of the button and store it as a document
  2. Create a Hyperlink field 
  3. Use the following code to convert the Hyperlink into a button

 HYPERLINK("/servlet/servlet.Integration?lid=01N300000008kgN&eid=" & {!Id} , IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.Images?oid=00D304011111xYG&id=0153111110400F5uW", "Create a New Opportunity"))

Here is how the code functions:


  • The first half of the code builds the link
  • The second half of the code displays the image you created for the button



That's it!
