Using External Links

External links are useful when you need to open a page in another system while working with a Session.

External links are added to the content in Sections of a Workflow. To get started, navigate to Workflows and choose a Workflow, then choose a Section where you would like to add an external link.

This will toggle a popover where you should enter the display text and the link (URL) for the external link.

Once you've provided the external link details, select Save.

Then you should see your link appear in the Section content.
