All products and plans

By creating an anchor on a specific part of a page, blog post, or knowledge base article, you can add a link to that section of your content. You can then insert anchor links within the same piece of content to let visitors navigate to that section without scrolling. You can also add links on other pages that send visitors directly to that section of your page. 

Please note: it's not recommended to use anchor links in emails, as they aren't supported by some email clients.
