    Are your planning to insert an external link to your website? If yes, then you can use the anchor tag to have a text link. Here's an example:

    <a target="_blank" href="urlofthewebsite">Link</a>


    If you are planning to add an external link to your form then please follow these steps:

    1. Add a "Text" field.
    2. Type the text on field.
    3. Highlight the text.
    4. Click the "Insert/Edit Link" button.

    5. Now, the pop up will appear and here you can put the URL or link. 

    Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    Thanks very much. I did work it our for myself in the end.

    Another matter that you may be able to help me with is can I customise the jotform link? So, instead of having a unique 'number' code at the end of the link I can have 'application form'. Thanks. L
