In another tab, open the DAU Tools page, find the tool for which you wish to add a link in your community, and copy the URL for it. [Note: On the DAU Tools page, you can scroll through the various types of tools, enter a search term, or click the magnifying glass to see a list of filters to help you narrow your search.]
