Hyperlinks, also called hotlinks, allow actions to be automated. For example, a hotlink can be created that logs the user into Agiloft and opens a new Bug Report record and sets the Severity field to Medium, hides the GUI so that the users never even realize that they have entered Agiloft and returns them to a URL of your choosing when they click the Finish button.
- You can create a hyperlink that will log a guest user in to any screen, such as the New User form, the New Ticket form, the New Lead form, etc. without showing them any of the interface.
- Power users can create their own hyperlinks to take them to different saved searches, different tables and so on.

Defining the Table in a Hyperlink
The table value is found by navigating to Setup > Tables, choosing a table, and clicking Edit. On the first tab of the wizard after the labels, you'll see the logical table name to be used in a hyperlink.
