Tech giant Microsoft will add hyperlinks support to Excel

Tech giant Microsoft is reportedly adding support for the hyperlinks feature to Excel.

According to Windows Central, the popular spreadsheet app will soon support hyperlinks in modern comments.

This feature has been requested for years and should make it easier to share content from the web while working together on a spreadsheet, according to the report.

The feature appears in a recently updated entry on the Microsoft 365 roadmap, he added.

Support for hyperlinks in modern comments could arrive as early as February 2022, but that’s not a firm release date.

Modern comments are available in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Designed for collaboration, modern comments support @mentions, which can then notify people via email.

Currently, it is possible to add hyperlinks to notes, but these are different from comments, the report says.

Support for hyperlinks in modern comments in Excel should ease user workflows and make it easier to share content online, he added.
