Hyperlinking FAQs:

Q: Can Field Labels/Titles be Hyperlinked?

A: We currently do not have a way to Hyperlink Field Titles, however, we do have a workaround! Start by adding a Description Area field to the Form and insert your Text and Hyperlinked data. Next, add your desired field under the Description Area field on your Form and check off the option to "Hide label on form". This will appear as though the hyperlinked Description Area field is the Label/Title for the second field.
