    The submitter asked if in the text of her submission, we could make a word a hyperlink. Can that be done?

    By normal flow of the submission process, the text submissions cannot be converted to a hyperlink, except when you set to have some certain texts to be hyperlinks on email alerts.

    But you can allow users to add hyperlinks on the texts they enter in a long text field (text area field) on the form builder by converting the field to rich text format. 

    Here is a sample screenshot on how to convert your long text to rich text:

    1) get the rich text field add it to your form and click properties

    2) go to options

    3) scroll down on and select Rich Text on the editor mode

    But if this is not what you mean or if you have additional information that may mean something else to what you are looking for, please let us know.

    Thanks.
