We reference this as a jump link within this document because it is the industry standard term. You may also know jump links by the name "anchor links."
How does a jump link work?
Jump links work at the component level so you can jump link a visitor to a specific component, allow you to push someone to your FAQ component or another component on a page.
When to use a jump link?
There is no one specific use case for jump links, however, commonly they're used on one-page websites, long-form pages, or pushing people directly to the form on the page.
Setting up a jump link
You may do so within the component's toolbar, simply hover the section and use the Anchor Icon to set a jump link title which may then be used for linking.
Jump links are indeed case-sensitive, so what you enter into the input must be used following the pound sign in the exact same case format.
What is a jump link? (technical)
Anchor linking adds an HTML ID (which will be referred to as "component name") to a component, this component name may be appended to the end of that pages URL prefixed by a # sign, then that # and component name would push the visitor to that specific, anchor-linked section.
Due to the way an HTML ID works, it should be alphanumeric without spaces or special characters, words may be separated by dashes or underscored.

Hyperlinking to a jump link
Jump links are not compatible with smart linking.
If you're on the same page where the jump link exists, you'll only need to enter the component's name prefixed by #.
You'll need to add the full URL with the # and component name added to it. If this is your homepage, you'll need to add a forward slash before adding the pound sign and component name.
