Brightidea offers a way to easily apply hyperlinks links to the Homepage of your Initiative. This can be done by navigating to Site Setup > Extra Links.
Admins will see an area to add any hyperlinks, one field is for the URL and the other field is the Text that will appear for that hyperlink. Once the link is applied, clicking "Add New" will save the link.
Note: For putting email addresses URL - just put: "mailto:____@___.com" - When the user clicks the link, it will pop up their mail client to shoot off an email.
After these links are added, navigate back to your Initiative Homepage and add the Extra Links widget. (Make sure Widget Setup Mode is on). This widget will then appear on the Homepage with all Extra Links that have been added.
