    You just need to add a textbox field and then set the default value to something like   http:///



    Then you can customize the label to something like  "please add your website"  to indicate they need the insert the URL of the page, as shown below :


    Once it is submitted, you should get the submission along with the info of the URL  into your inbox


    If you still need further assistance, let us know.

    Thank you!
    I can see that. But it still doesn't show up as a clickable internet link
    in reports or submissions? Only in the mailnotification??

    I am sorry. Please disregard my previous reply. 

    You were looking for the user's capability to add a URL, not a fixed URL that I suggested.
