The button field is an interactive column type that lets you trigger certain actions directly.

Adding button: Select button column type 

Select button label you want and type URL formula, or just URL

Current Button field actions

1. Open URL

The Open URL will open a link where the URL can be based on values from your record. Clicking will send you to the URL in the new window.

More, you can enter a URL formula. This uses the same formula syntax as the existing formula column and supports using cell values from other columns.
