If the destination of your Link widget has input parameters, you have to specify the values that you want to send to that screen or action. This is done by specifying the Arguments property of the widget. How?

If you double-click on a Link widget, in your screen flow, Service Studio automatically opens the destination of that widget: either a screen or an action flow.

To improve the interaction with the user, you can specify a default link, invoked when the end-user presses ENTER. See Default Button or Link.
