Edit Task Form , add a hyperlink target="_blank" doesn't work

Hi,

 

I have added a link to my Edit Form Task and would like the link to be open in new window. I added target="_blank" and nw="true" to the Edit source, but as soon as I save and exit out from Lable Setting whatever I added gets disappeared and the link won't open in new window

Hi Nafiseh, I've spoken to our product teams, and unfortunately the reason you're having problems is due to a bug. It's been logged, and I'll keep you updated on the progress of this.

 

Thanks

Em

Any update on this? Often we have supporting documents for people to reference when filling out a form. We need to be able to allow them to follow those links without being navigated away from the form.

Just discovered you can now manually add a link and it sticks (at least as of Forms on-prem 2013 ver 2.4.0.0). I don't believe that was working in a prior revision. So just go into Edit Source mode and add a regular HTML link tag:

<a href="www.mydomain.com/link.htm" target="_blank">My link text here</a>

Would be great to have the Nintex interface provide the option to set the Open in New Window option like standard SharePoint rich text editor does. Also, the Nintex Insert Link option doesn't keep the text you've highlighted prior to selecting to insert a link. Means retyping the link text a second time if you've already typed it out in the body of your content.

Opening a link in a new window can also be done by adding a button (action: JavaScript, typ: Link) in the advanced section you enter window.open("the link") by on-click.

Re: Edit Task Form , add a hyperlink target="_blank" doesn't work

I'm still experiencing this problem! I've been updating every hyperlink on my form by adding target="_blank" to the link tag (that were created by using 'Insert a hyperlink') only to find out these alterations weren't actually being saved.

Good solution, adding the complete link tag! I deleted all tags, entered complete new ones and this time target="_blank" didn't disappear upon saving the form.
