Resolution

VIA "LINKS":

You may add a hyperlink by going to Admin Center > Configure People Profile.
If the Links option is visible, that block allows you to set up an URL.

NOTE
: This will only be visible during Edit mode and NOT in View mode.

  • On "URL" Field, insert the link you want people to be directed to;
  • On "Text to Display", type the text you want to be visible for people to click on in order to be directed to the other page;



  • Now, go to Employee Profile and find the block you added the link to;
  • Click on the "pencil" icon (Edit), and see the link you have configured:

VIA "BLOCK DESCRIPTION":

It is possible to add links using the "Description" box / Help Text, too.

  • Type a text in the "Block Description" box;

  • Select the text you want to be clickable;
  • Click the "..." (More Options) button;
  • Then, click on "Insert/Edit Link";



  • The following screen will appear;



    URL: URL of the target website.
    Display Text: Text you have previously selected, that will be clickable.
    Title: Tooltip text. Limited functionality, as it does not support spaces.
    Target:
     - None = Opens the website on the same tab.
     - New Window = Opens the website on another tab.

  • After that, go to Employee Profile and find the block you added the link to;
  • Click on the "Help" icon and see the available link:





    NOTE
    : This tool will also work for Translations
