    Is there a way to insert a URL into a form.

    Asked by sfriday on January 08, 2015 at 11:53 AM

    I would like to be able to send the responder to a website URL and then return to the form after viewing that website.  Is this possible.

    Yes, you can use the TEXT field found in Form Tools to add a static/read-only text with a link

    Just set the URL link to open on new window  so that it will also open on separate window.


    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    To get the box to show you, you need to first enter the URL you would like to link to:

    Once you highlight the text of your URL, you can click on insert link to insert the link.

    Sorry for the late response, we had several replies that were and bugged and just came through today.  If you have any further questions let us know in this thread here:
