Hi there -
We're using Survey123 to build a custom report. Some of the values that we're trying to embed into the report template are hyperlinks. But in the output report, the urls are not hyperlinked. Is there a way in the report template to make the data value a hyperlink?
We would have thought that simply doing the standard "right-clicking --> Insert hyperlink" in Word would work, but the "address" box doesn't recognize the variable in the template.
Can provide more info if needed.
Maybe try using HTML for it?
<a href="www.google.com" target=_top" Google</a>
If that doesn't work, you can create a series of helper questions to create the hyperlink by concatenating the various parts of that format with your link and its label.
Thanks Alfred..... unfortunately neither works....looks like when the template is processed by Survey123 when uploaded, it strips the ability to hyperlink. The url will print, but it's not hyperlinked.
Hi @Michael_Knapp ,
If you want to utilize the survey data for the text or URL of a hyperlink, it is currently not available in the Survey123 report.
We have a backlog issue for this and I've added your voice to it, but there is not a solid plan yet. Please feel free to raise a ticket to Esri Support Service to prioritize this work.
Do you know when this feature will be added? We would like to have a dynamically created URL for our dashboard, passing URL parameters so it goes directly to this feature in the feature layer.
One quick follow up with a weird work around. Someone else at esri told us that, when you create the report as a pdf, the pdf writer will generate hyperlinks IF YOU DO THE FOLLOWING:
1) The hyperlink must be contained in a single unbroken (not multiple rows) line
2) Format the text for the hyperlink field in Word's blue hyperlink color
3) Underline the hyperlink text
Strange, but it works
