I'm trying to add a button in a Hub site for a Survey123 with custom parameters. 

Every time I add the link in the href = "..." and click ok, it translates the & to amp;amp;.

This breaks the Survey123 URL parameters link. I have tried encoding it ahead of time with & but then it add amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp. It's all chaos!!

How the heckin' do I get the HTML to stop doing this or add a button that will just open up my Survey with the custom URL parameters? 😬😬😬😬😬

Hi Teresa

This is a known issue and the fix and will hopefully be implemented soon. 😊 Until then, you can embed links containing the "&" character with certain other types of HTML buttons. For example, the Bootstrap button classes work for me: 

<a class="btn btn-primary" href="#" role="button">Link</a>
