Is there a way to add a link to a document within forms?


I've added a membership form to our site and i'd like to direct new members to read our Privacy Policy upon completing the form.


The final question on the membership form reads; 'I have read and consent to the privacy policy' and i'd like members to be able to click on the words 'privacy policy' to view the document, but I can't see a way to add this?

Is this possible at all?


Thank you! :)

You can't add the link directly into the question text (it would get muddled anyway, as clicking on this text is supposed to toggle the radio button not load a link).

One simple option would be to add HTML into the Help Text for that question, including a link to your privacy policy.

e.g., in Help Text add:

Read our <a href="/link/to/privacy/policy" target="_blank">Privacy Policy</a>.

Adding target="_blank" will open the privacy policy in a new tab/window - opening in the same window might be annoying if they've already filled in the form but not submitted it yet!
