Building a Link Using HTML

There are a couple of places within SurveyGizmo (e.g., answer options) where you might want to create a hyperlink and the editor that makes it really easy is not available. This does not mean that you cannot create a link! It just means you will need to use some HTML code to do so. We will walk you through the steps below; it's not scary, we promise!

We recommend constructing your link in a plain-text editor. Then, you can paste it where you want it within SurveyGizmo.

Start by pasting the URL you wish to link to in your plain-text editor.

Paste URL Into Text Editor

Next, put quotes around your link followed by open and closing carets.

Add Quotes and Carets

Inside your opening caret add: a href=

Add a href Attribute

After the closing caret, add the closing a tag: </a>

Add Closing a Tag

Inside the first closing caret and second open caret, enter what you wish your link to read. For example, "Click here." You can also just place the URL here again; this will display the URL as clickable.

Add Clickable Text

If you wish to have this link open in a new tab or window so the survey respondent doesn't navigate away from your survey, you will need to add an attribute to follow your link. This will look like so:

Open Link in New Tab/Window

Now you can take this link that you constructed and place/paste it where you would like in SurveyGizmo.
