The Anchor function is meant to give designers the option of linking within the guideline. There's a couple of steps involved to achieving this. First, you designate a row an anchor by adding a label to the row after clicking on the anchor icon, which sits next to the delete row icon:

When this is done you can link to this row from pretty much everywhere in the document, by choosing it in the anchor panel which appears in the link menu for both Text and Button:

Needless to say, there are multiple uses for having anchors within a document, a hot tip is to create a table of contents at the top of the guideline, so the users can easily navigate to the section they are looking for without having to scroll down to it first. The anchors themselves can also be modified or removed using the Anchor Panel within the Navigation Presets, and used to create a separate navigation within a hamburger menu which then will be visible on the the live guideline. To find out more about how this works, jump over to the Navigation help article.
