Hello, 

I've just created a survey using Survey123 Connect and have published it. In my survey I have created a label which includes a hyperlink. This hyperlink is being pulled from a csv file using the pulldata function. 

Here is my label with the hyperlink: Click <a href="${reference}" target="_blank">here</a> for an identification guide

This link works perfectly fine in the app, but not in the web form. In the web form is looks like this: 

Click " target="_blank">here for an identification guide

Any ideas on why the web form link does not work but the app link does?

Hi, hyperlink does work differently in the web app, and I normally use the concat() function for building hyperlink in the web form.

If you don't mind using a note question to display the hyperlink, below is an example that works for both field and web apps. Given that concat() does not work in label, I put it in the calculation and use a placeholder for the label. You might also find the calculation looks wrong in the app if ${reference} is empty, hence I give ${reference} a default value.
