Custom defect field for clickable URLs

Hi,
is there a way to add a defect field in QC, where the user can add/store a URL which is clickable (i.e. opening a browser window when clicked on)? This is the same functionality which is offered, when adding a URL as an attachment. But I need this for a "normal" field. I'm using QC 8.2.
Thanks for any help .... Harald

Try to define it as a new memo field (same as description, r&d comment) and default it with html template (such as your link here)

Thanks Phillipe,

but it doesn't seem to work or I'm doing something wrong. Added a memo field and added in the workflow script/defects module script/Defect_Bug_New the following as a test:

Bug_Fields("BG_USER_26").Value = _
"Overwrite with link"

The text "Overwrite with link" is displayed in blue and underlined. When I overwrite it with a valid URL this stays blue and underlined but is not clickable. Any other tipps or hints?

Not possible yet Im afraid, only attachments available.
Memo fields like description display font color/bold/underline/italic html tags but dont react when clicked on.
