Using hyperlinks in pam

Creating links

When posting a Note or a Discussion in pam you can add in links to other pam pages or other sites on the internet. You can also link to documents, helping you and other users more easily find and open those documents in future.

You will need is the URL of the page you want to link to. You can get this by going to the page you want to create a link to and copying the URL from the address bar of your browser.

Once you’ve copied the URL go to the initiative in pam where you want to post the note or discussion. You then have two options:

Option 1) Paste the link you have copied into the text box (you can right click and choose paste or press CTRL+V) and then press the space bar. This will turn the URL you pasted into hyperlink allowing people to click on it when you post the message

Option 2) Alternatively you can turn some text into a hyperlink (so it looks like this). To do that highlight the text you want to make a link and then click the link icon in the editor of the discussion or notes area. This will open a small pop up box. Paste the URL you copied into the “Link URL” field and click insert. When you post the message people will be able to click on that text and be taken straight to the page you have linked.

This is how these two options look when posted in a discussion
