Enterprise, 7.5: Unable to Insert Sugar Record ID in formula

We have imported multiple leads:
  • People Leads: contain first name and last name
  • Business Leads: contain the Account Name, no first name or last name
SugarCRM Enteprrise 7.5 will only create hyperlinks to lead records if it contains a first name or last name, which is not applicable for businesses, which only have a business name, and not a first name or last name.

To get around this surprising fact, I want to create a formula field that creates a link to the record, unfortunately, the record ID field is not available in formulas.

How have other people solved this issue? Should be pretty standard, am I missing something?
