You can perform the following customizations for the user experience of the URL field on a form:

When your users access reports, the URLs will appear clickable on a web browser and tappable on a phone/tablet.

You can set the target with any of the following values:

  • New Window: This will launch a new window or tab of your user’s web browser, and open the URL in it
  • Same Window: This will open the URL in the same window from which your users (while accessing a report) click on a URL
