    Hi I have made a jotform and added a link to this form on a facebook status. How do I edit the link so that instead of a long string, I will have the option of setting in a text as "submit to the cource", and when clicking on this text, the user will be transferred to the form?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Can you please clarify what is the "long string" you mentioned about?

    Was it the form URL like this  http://www.jotformeu.com/form/40937544155357 ?

    You can hyperlink the form URL on text.. example "submit to the source"  

    Is this how meant?

    Please inform us if further assistance is needed.

    Thanks!

    Hi, it is not possible to hyperlink a text in a facebook status to redirect to the URL of the form, the only way is to paste the URL and it will be automatically hyperlinked.

    Forgot to say, you may use the share option, 

    https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=[FORM_URL]

    Example:

    https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=http://form.jotform.com/form/10990911297

    So it will appear this way in your timeline:
