Can I add links to custom fields?

There are two methods of adding links to custom fields. You can create:

  • a URL custom field. It’s a validated input field that lets you enter a site address.
  • a text field and add an <a> tag to link to an external page. This is possible for checkbox text fields only.

In this article, we show you how to add a link to a text field. For general instructions on creating custom fields (including URL fields), go to How do I create and use custom fields. If you need to add consent fields and link to your Privacy policy and collect consent, go to How do I create and use GDPR fields

Creating a checkbox field

1. In your GetResponse account, go to Contacts and click Custom fields in the top menu.
2. Click the Create custom field button.
3. Enter a name, e.g. “checkbox_with_link”.

6. In the options field, type in the text you want to display to your potential contacts.

To include a link, add the <a> HTML tag, for example:

 <a href='https://example.com' target='_blank'>example text hyperlinked to external pages</a>

Swap the link in the example for the link you want to use and modify the text that will be linked. Be sure to include https:// and use single quotes (‘ ‘) in the tag. The linked document will open in a separate window.

7. Click Save.
The custom field you’ve created will appear within your User-defined custom fields on the Manage page.

Repeat steps 2-7 to create as many checkbox fields as you need.
