    Hi Lexcy

    Thanks for asking. Yes, you can most certainly link text on your form to another form. You can even use an image link if you wish.

    However, to specifically address your question, do the following:

    1. Load the form to wish you would like to link, into the form builder, click the Preview button and copy [Ctrl + C] the Form URL to your clipboard:

    2. Close the Preview window, load the form which will contain the link, into the form builder and from the Power Tools menu insert a free text (HTML) field:

    3. Click the Edit HTML button in the free text (HTML) field and replace the default "click to edit this text..." text with that you wish to use as the link to the other form

    4. Select the newly inserted text and click the Insert/edit link button:

    5. Paste [Ctrl + V] the URL you earlier copied into the Link URL text box:

    6. Click Insert > Complete and save the form.

    I've never attempted it before but I imagine turning a label of a field into a link would require embedding the full source of the second form into a web page and wrapping the said label in anchor tags with an href (hypertext reference) attribute whose value in this case would be the URL of the first form.

    That's it. If you require clarification on anything, please let us know. Our team would be happy to help.
