Why is there no URL/website field type? And why is there no default website field for organizations? Am I missing something?

    Hi @Galen King 

    You can create a text type of custom field under the organization for this. The URL will automatically become hyperlinked when filled in.

    Thanks, yeah, that’s what I have done. My worry is that there is no validation—is that an issue for anyone?

    LEAD / CUSTOMER URL FIELD should ABSOLUTELY be included in standard field ASAP!

    Thinking actually switching out Pipedrive because of this major deficiency!

    Kind regards

    100% agree. most data resources validate companies by URL. This should not be custom field and certainly not a text field.

    BUG: a url typed in a custom field is recognised as a LINK by the browser, but not by the APP.

    this is a problem.
