Shorten project:URL when exporting task report

Dear Community, today I was trying to update a report which is (fequently) exported as a PDF and sent via Mail. Everything works fine, apart from the column "Project URL" (vf=project:URL). This column is extensive due to the length of the links. Using custom rules I replaced the URL with (when not empty) with the text "LINK", which sadly does not provide a clickable link anymore. Well it does, but it leads to https://LINK. So I browsed some other threads and I found the following options, which did not really work for me... "https://one.workfront.com/s/question/0D50z00006Px4mDCAR/">shorten url "https://community.workfront.com/discussions/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MessageKey=bb4bd152-7881-4e04-b24c-f081c70ac8d4&CommunityKey=aaafaff0-5e4e-4e38-8903-f1f990935567&tab=digestviewer#bmbb4bd152-7881-4e04-b24c-f081c70ac8d4#bm7">How do I make the value within the column an active URL to click on? Does anyone here have an idea on how to solve this? Thanks! Best, Marius Marius Uzolas HERE

Hi Marius, You've linked to a thread I started and I don't believe there's a resolution for this thing yet. You might want to upvote the idea I've put up on the idea exchanged - ability to shorten url/links.
