This document provides instruction on how to add, edit, or delete hyperlinks.

How to add/edit links

  1. Type out what you want in your text.  Highlight the section that you want to hyperlink.

  1. Click the “Link” button in the toolbar.


  1. Enter the full link to the location you wish to direct the user.  Include the “https://” If you want to have the link open in a new window, select that property here. All links external to the Guide (including departmental websites) need to be opened in a new window.

Click “OK”

  1. Click “OK” to save changes  

End result:


Email Hyperlinks

  3. Click “OK”

  4. Click “OK” to save.


Deleting a Hyperlink
