Question on behaviour of links created from workflows


Many a times we have a need to create a link of an element which can’t be created by using the element type “Link”. This could be a complex group, or a repeatable group element or sometimes it just so happens that making that thing clickable is an afterthought and then changing it to Link type later is cumbersome, sometimes impossible.

So, method that I know to do that is to create a workflow that gets triggered on clicking that element and give “navigate” as the action in the workflow.

Couple of questions here:

  1. Is this practice SEO friendly? The item doesn’t look like a-href in html code so not sure if Google browses it

  2. It prevents ability for users to do a right click and open in new tab or to copy the link destination etc. Can it be achieved even with the workflow approach?
