    "Firstly how do i link the forms to a directory"

    As per your above explanation, you said you are creating a business directory, so I understand you want to have a link in your forms to this Business Directory, is that correct? well you can do as follows:

    1 - From the form builder add a Text field, click on Edit HTML as follows:

    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.

    The second option is to add a link to the Thank You page, after user click on Submit button will be redirect to the indicated URL which is the Business Directory you have created.

    Please take a look at the following guide that help you with this:



    I hope this helps. Please let us know if we can further assist you.
