Embedding Google Form link in an MS Word document

Embedding a Google Form link in a MS Word document results in a shibboleth error.

This can be replicated by doing the following:

1. Create a Word document
2. Paste a Google Forms link into the document
3. Click on the link in the Word document

Users will get the error message on the page https://shibboleth.umich.edu/idp/Authn/UWLogin. There is currently no known workaround for resolving this issue.

NOTE: This error does NOT occur if the link is embedded in an Open Office document or a Google Doc, or if the link is sent out via email or placed on a web page -- so the issue is likely occurring with MS Word.
