    referring to https://www.jotform.com/answers/498438-How-to-add-a-clickable-email-link-in-form

    Hello, this kinda works, but it also (in Chrome, not Firefox) opens an empty browser tab with "mailto:someone@email.org" in the address bar. This might lead the user to think that something went wrong and (accidentally) abort the questionnaire.

    Add this in the hyperlink code

    So it won't open a new tab

    Hope this helps!
