Launch URL from Sharepoint List Dropdown in PowerApps

This example is when you are using a dropdown in PowerApps and wanting to open a link that is in the list with a button.

The list will need to have the URL that you want to open in a proper format eg. “”.

This example below assumes that you already have the Sharepoint List connected to your PowerApp.
