I want to place one default value in Hyperlink column after adding new item to list. For that, I want to use a workflow.

e.g I have one document list in which I have added new hyperlink column as default value and now when I am adding new item to list the one value should be placed inside this column. like

Title    Modified   Modified by  Default value
-----    --------   ----------    test
-----    --------   ----------    test
-----    --------   ----------    test

Note: test is default value inside the default value column.

How can I achieve this?

To update a hyperlink field using SharePoint designer workflow do like below,

SPD Workflow > Action > Set Field in Current Item

Set HyperlinkField to  http://google.com, Google

This is dynamic dynamic string action, in that construct your url, description value information.

Note: The comma and space are important.
