This addition is absolutely awesome.

Would love an option to duplicate a Google Sheets tab as a Glide Table.

It would help me update all the templates I have published and improve performance.

Not sure what “Construct URL” is…but it looks useful!

Oh…I get it.

Like a fancy template column. Wondering what the advantages are here over a template column? The fact that it’s automatically formatted as a link?

I see some in-app UTM and tag builder/tracking capabilities with this…nevermind ref_URL’s…

Good eye and yet another cool feature Glide team! :ok_hand:

Makes sense.

But couldn’t this be done with the template column?

yeah, you can build links with the Template column…but like Robert said, I think the difference is in the ability to change the URL Protocol, Path, and formatting (HTTP/HTTPS). I could be wrong…always a possibility haha

I’m REALLY hoping for an “encode” column type that can encode in % escape, base64, and md5 hash

You’re correct…parameters are URL encoded! Glide continues to impress!!!

Sometimes, when crafting URLs, parameters need to be URL encoded

eg.
Not this:

But this:
