It would be helpful to be able to put a clickable link inside the help text for a field. When a Podio user needs to fill out an entry for something, but they may need to reference an outside source, this would be extremely valuable. Currently, even if I put a web link in there and ask them to copy and paste it, because of the way the help text pops up they can't even do that. Currently I have the link in the title of a calculation field, but that's ugly and messy, and not clickable. Perhaps if we could both add clickable links and be able to make the help text appear under the field instead of a popup (as an option) this would be a lot more functional.
You can make the link in the calculation field clickable and less ugly by using Markdown. Put the link text between square brackets followed by the link url between brackets.

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, the calculation field itself isn't helpful, because I need it when the entry is being filled out (at which point the calculation field is just a dash). I've currently put it in the title of the calculation field, where Markdown isn't supported.
Crazy Workaround: You can write a script inside tampermonkey and open podio with chrome
All fields have a class inside html, grab that class from page source and add a code to always highlight the hint field until the field is out of focus, this way you can click or copy that link as you want
If you want help with this I can probably write a script that does just that
