Add a Hyperlink to a Service Item

I would like to add a Hyperlink to my Service Item which will open a new Tab and display some related information.  How can I add a Hyperlink to my Service Item?

Resolution

The following page from w3schools has some good examples:

For this example I will create a Hyperlink which will take the end user to the Kinetic Data Web Site.

To add a Hyperlink to a Service Item you would take the following steps:

1)  Add a Text Element to your Service Item.

2)  Enter the following into the Text Element:

<a href="http://www.kineticdata.com/"target="_blank"><b>Kinetic Data Web Site</b></a>

*Note that the "target="_blank" is the syntax for opening the URL in another Window.

3)  Save the Text Element.

4)  Save the Service Item.

5)  Open the Service Item and you will see the following:

6)  Click the Kinetic Data Web Site Hyperlink and a New Tab will open and display the Kinetic Data Web Site:

*Note that the Hyperlink Service Item still appears on the First Tab above.
