Display link icon for hyperlink in Google Sheets

Google Sheets can display hyperlinks in cells but sometimes you do not want to see the whole hyperlink in the cell. Why not display a nice icon instead? Let me explain how to do it.

Link icon instead of text url

The following formula insert a icon that is hyperlinked to an issue on GitLab. The cell A17 should contain the issue number on GitLab. If A17 is blank the icon will not be displayed.


I use the link icon from the foundicons library hosted on cdnjs.
