    You can add HTML code into your form by using Text form field. Please have a look at the following instructions:

    #1- Drag and drop Text in Basic Fields to your form. Double click the Text field.


    #2- Click Source Code button to open Source Code window. You write your HTML here. After that, you click the OK button.

    You can write below codes into Source Code to add a hyperlink:

    <a target="_blank" href="Website_URL" > Click Here </a>

    Don't forget click "Complete" button to save changes.


    On the other hand, you can use Insert Link in Text field to add a hyperlink, too. This is easier than writing source code to add a hyperlink. Please have a look at the following image:

    URL: direct URL of the webpage

    Text to Display: clickable text, "Click Here" for example

    Target: You select from here in which window your link will be opened.

    Finally, click OK and Complete buttons to save.

    If you need any further details, please feel free to let us know.

    Thank you.
