    I want to confirm if I understood correctly what you mean. Do you mean that you would want to place a link on jotform that will allow your user to jump through the jotform - to move to some other part of it?

    If this is not what you meant, can you please give us a bit more details.

    Also, what is the jotform that you wanted to add this - it will help us to better understand what you want to achieve.

    Best Regards,

    Hello! Sorry, I should have taken more time to pose my question. I've typed a URL into subheading text that I'd like applicants to be able to click on and have it jump outside the form eg. have it open a webpage in a new tab that contains more information on the program they're applying for. I've seen this done in a Jotform(s) but it was in a block of editable html code that was somehow added to the form (uploaded as file, pasted directly into the sourcecode)? Is there simple way to do this?

    Thanks in advance, Ben.

    Hi Ben,

    I took a look at your jotform (LSTA Continuing Education Grant from ICfL - Budget table to be uploaded) since that seems to be the last form that you have updated and I see that there are some fields that have links in them in the page 1.

    You have either found how to do it or I misunderstood what you wanted to achieve. Can you please tell me the exact text that you would like to change into a link? The Text field will allow you to change the size and style of the text to match the sub heading style.

    If you can, please tell us the text you would like to change so that we can find it and the form (if it is not that one I have mentioned above).

    Best Regards,
