Did you know that you can place hyperlinks in Survey questions? The process is as simple as adding some HTML tags around the text you wish to use as a hyperlink. Hyperlinks in survey questions can be useful in a couple different situations:
- As links in statement questions at the end of a survey that direct traffic to your organization’s website.
- As references to pages that the survey asks about (such as a PDF).
Identify the question text that you want to hyperlink. Create or modify a question. In the Question field, enter the following HTML tags around text to become the hyperlink:
<a href="www.[websitename].org">Astronomy Organization</a>
Click Make Changes.
The text is now hyperlinked in the question!
One More Thing…
Make sure you remember that hyperlinks may potentially divert users from their ultimate task: completing the survey! To avoid interfering with the survey too much, you’ll want to add a parameter to the HTML that opens the link in a new tab. Use the “_blank” attribute to do this (see the example below):
<a href="www.[websitename].org" target="_blank">Astronomy Organization</a>
This attribute tells your browser to open the link in a new tab, preventing you from losing any data in the current survey tab!
