What is a Custom URL Page?

If you need to direct your applicants to a web page during the application or onboarding process you can use the Custom URL Information Page to redirect an applicant to a different site. 

The applicant will click the continue button and be directed in a separate tab to the linked web page. In order to complete the application or onboarding information, they will need to return to the original tab and click submit. 

How to Create a Custom URL Page
  1. In HRCenter Admin, navigate to pages on the left and select the plus to add a new page. 
  2. Enter an Internal/Display Name and choose the Information Page Type:
    • Select the arrow in the lower right to continue.
  3. Select Custom URL Page 
    • If you turn on the required switch, the user will be required to click the link before continuing.
    • Select the arrow in the lower right to continue
  4. Enter the Custom URL link 
    • Select the arrow in the lower right to continue
  5. Select Save

Add your new page to a Workflow

Creating links in Surveys

Within administration start by creating a new survey. For additional help on creating surveys navigate to How to Create Surveys.


Once the display name, description, and private name are entered, add a group. 

Enter the title of the website, video, or informational page as your group name (1.).

In the following example this will be a safety video. From the add group area select the add question (2.) option.Within the questions panel users will add the html code and insert the hyperlink information . There are two types of html codes users can choose from:

  1. <a href=""></a> -  This html code will leave HRCenter and navigate to the webpage
  2. <a href="" target="_blank"></a>-  This html code allows users to remain in HRCenter and open the link in a new window

As an example, the safety video will be added using option 1 html code.  Place the html code in and add the link information within the quotes"" ,  the display name is added between the >< icons and describes what the link actually is (workplace safety) vs. seeing it in code format.

Option 1:

*Note* If you are creating html hyperlinks as a survey you must enter in answers options. In the example below, the html code has been added along with additional questions and answers. 

Option 2:

After the survey is created, a page must be created to incorporate it within your workflow.
