Hi Imran,

This is just something to try - haven't tried it myself:
Collect now supports Markdown for text formatting (see post here
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/opendatakit/mbsxVXC7m94/fH9VveyXAAAJ)

There are several ways of displaying links:

Perhaps try one of those. e.g:

Please click here

I'm not sure if XLSForm supports this - check the xml file and modify there if needed.

ODK Team, can you confirm whether Collect will display Markdown links?

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

We do have Markdown support for URLs in 1.4.10, but there is a bug
disables the link so you can't tap on it. I fixed that bug a few weeks
back and it will be in the next release.


is the patch.

In the meanwhile, you use type=string, appearance=url, and
default=http://example.com if you need a URL button that you can
click. We added this feature years ago, but it wasn't publicized. ODK
Collect has a couple of these little tricks that I've been meaning to
document...

I've attached a sample form.

Hi Yaw,

Just wondering if the url can be extracted from a csv file.
If is my understanding that default values cannot be loaded on the fly from
an external csv

For example, a link to a photo of the location you are going to visit,
could be included in the csv, and the form could present a click through to
the photo.

This would avoid having to create a unique individual form for each
"visit", as would be the case if a fixed default value was used.

Apologies if default values can be loaded from csv files - my bad.

Hi Anne,

Given some key, you should be able to get values from the CSV and
store it in the form. I don't think it'll work as a default value (I
haven't tried), but you should be able to use pulldata and store it in
a calculate.
