Hyperlinks are not treated as hyperlinks

In various part of Blueworks Live where text can be entered, hyperlinks are not clickable.
Notable areas are:
- custom textfields
- documentation
- comments

The only part where hyperlinks work is adding it as a policy and then adding the policy to the process diagram

    Thanks for your request, Filip! Actually you can create clickable links anywhere that the Rich Text Editor is accessible within Blueworks Live. That includes the Documentation section of Activity Details, the Documentation section of Process details, posting to the activity stream, creating blog posts, the Space Details description field and probably a few more places that I'm not thinking of at the moment. Just click on one of those areas in Edit mode and you'll see the hyperlink icon in the Rich Text Editor toolbar that appears. You can add your link there and specify whether or not you would like for it to open in a new window when clicked.
    But it's true that you can't create clickable links in comments fields. That's something that we may consider doing in the future.
    And as far as custom text fields are concerned, we will be adding the ability to capture links with glossary terms. This is driven primarily by the requirement to provide traceability between glossary terms in Blueworks Live and associated metadata in external systems/repositories. But it would enable you to associate a clickable link with your custom text value.
