Hello!

 

I would like to be able to have text hyperlinked to support articles within the description of a field, for any Request form in JSM.

So instead of having to link the entire url, it would look something like this:

If you are unsure what that means, read this article first.

 

My gut feeling tells me this isn't possible, as I've tried the most commen ways to hyperlink:

[text](url)

<a href="url">Text</a>

 

But maybe I'm missing something?

Hi @Tobias H - Yes this is possible, but you'd use markdown instead of HTML. Here's the format:

That is great news!

I actually thought of markdown, but totally forgot how you actually format the link 😅😂

I’ll give it a try when I get the time and if it works I’ll mark your reply as accepted! 🎉

 

Edit: Works like a charm! Amazing, thanks!

I am trying to to the same in one form but it is not working for me.  Where do you add the format? I am adding it on the Description field.

@Mark Segall any idea?

@Marcela Rojas @Dani Lucas On the JSM Forms you cannot add the hyperlink. Use the format listed below:

[name|http://example.com]

 

And add it to the Request Form "Instruction" Area:

It's a 2 step process but it works. Good Luck.

Is it possible to do the same on the Display Name, or only in the instruction/description area..?
