Setting the URL and Hyperlink Description Simultaneously on a URL Field in a SharePoint Designer Workflow

If you need to update a URL field in a links list (or any other list) from SharePoint Designer, you need to know this little trick.  Create a string that contains the URL and description like this:

 

URL, Description

 

and then update the field with this string.  Notice there is a comma AND A SPACE after the URL.  There are no brackets, curly braces or octothorpes (# signs) involved in the string.

 

Using the string builder, you can see the "input" and the "output" of the workflow.
