Adding a hyperlink to your Nintex Form

You may find while designing your Nintex Form, that you need to include a hyperlink to another location. I'm going to show you how you can add a hyperlink to a label control. It's very similar to adding a hyperlink to say, a Word document.

Open you form, and add a Label control. Enter some text - my example I have included "I have read and accept the..."

Now you can add in your hyperlink. Click on the Insert tab, and then click on Link.


This is where you can add a hyperlink into your form.

Below the Insert Reference dialog, you will see a section for a web address.

In the Address field, you'll need to enter the URL where the document can be accessed from.
In the Hyperlink text to display, type "Corporate Travel Guidelines". Click OK.












Click the General tab and Save the action.

Re: Adding a hyperlink to your Nintex Form

Is there a way to indicate it should open in a different window or tab?

I want to add it to my form, to allow a search for a customer if necessary, but it shouldn't pull the user away from the form itself.

** Note:  The answer to this question is to add

     target = '_blank'

to the href statement in the underlying HTML.

New tab opens on user click.

How?

When you save the form target = '_blank' is stripped out.

Do you have an example?

I'm not sure whether it would be  possible with label control (I've never tested it), but here you find an example how to achieve similar thing with calculated value control

Emily,

While trying to duplicate your steps I found that I don't have the same Common References available to me (see image).  What could cause this mismatch?  (using Nintex Forms & Workflow 2016 on-prem)
