    1. Add Text

    2. Type in your URL or word that represents your link i.e. Click Here

    3. Select / Highlight  your URL or Word

    4.Click on the Edit Link icon

    5.A dialog will pop up asking you to put the URL link in and whether the user opens it on on a new tab or on current page.

    You can add this code to your form:

    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jotform.com">Visible link text</a>

    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jotform.com" >Visible link text</a>

    The 1st version opens in the same page, the 2nd version opens a new window. Edit the green part with your url, and the blue part for the message that is visible for people. 

    Let us know please if you need more assistance.

    @healthpropress, what @memaxt meants is shown on the following figures:

    Click on Text and the text field will be added to the form, click on Edit HTML


    After that, the following screen will pop up:

    Write the desired text,highlight it, the link icon will become active, click on it and the Insert/edit link screen will pop up, fill in the blanks.


    Do not forget to click on Insert when you are done.

    Hello tbhatia,

    You must select the Text element while editing the form in the form builder. After which, the button will appear.

    Please let us know if you need assistance.

    Can you add hyperlink to a header, or a widget that isn't strictly a text widget?

    It is not currently possible to insert HTML into headers.  The text in the text field could be styled to resemble a header but HTML would be stripped from an actual header field.
