Hi,

I wanted to provide a link to a separate site in the help text of a specific form field. Is there a way I can add links to that or is it all just plain text?

Agreed. Four years and this is still an outstanding feature request.

Edit to add (5/8/24)-- This has been fixed and I am so thankful to now be able to add hyperlinks to text via the new version of forms.

Wish they would get this fixed!

Indeed, when can we expect a fix for this issue ?
Do we know if it is currently been upped to Airtable team?

fillout.com lets you make an Airtable form and format all of the question text, e.g. if you’re looking to add hyperlinks or format the text like a word-doc. It’s free and quick to set up if you want to give it a shot!

I made a quick example below with a hyperlink in some help text:
