I have URLs in some of my source records.  Is there a way to encode it so that the FT API maps it into the "Web Page" field?

If you place the URL as a WebTag under the Master Text tab for the source, it will transfer over to FamilySearch through the FT API.

Data in the Master Text tab maps to the notes field in FT.  I would have to edit every source that is loaded via the FT API, and that is what I want to avoid.

 

Is there another method available that would cause the data to map to FT's "Web Page" field?

Use the WebTag on the Master Text tab not just entering text there. It will create a hyperlink  for the source on Family Tree.
