    Did you meant add a clickable URL link on a sub lable?  Currently it is not possible since the Form Builder will clear/remove any HTML tags being added to labels or sub label of fields.

    You may want to use instead a TEXT field and put your clickable URL link on it.


    If you meant you want to style/format the sub label of fields, you can use the Form Designer to stylize any element on the form.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    It was possible.

    I always had formatted text using html, so for example, I had part of the text in red, part in black using a span tag.
    I saved my form today, after minor changes (no sub label changes), and confirmed that every html tag I had was showing. around 10 sub labels.
    I can live with this but I strongly hope you don't remove the ability to add html to labels, since I add a clickable link for a picture in many of them, so my customers can actually click and have a visual of what each option is.
