Format the Respond Link

Hi All,

 

I've set up approval reminders emails which include the link to respond to the approval.

The links are long strings of letters, numbers, ID's and whatevers, just as you'd expect, but not very user friendly.

I'd like to be able to format them to human readable links but can't figure out how.

I've tried wrapping the dynamic content Respond link in HTML in the code view but that doesn't work, e.g.

 

 

 

<a href="respond-link-url">Click Me!</a>

 

 

 

I've also tried setting the link as a string variable and wrapping that in HTML with the same result (although I'm not very practiced with variables so that could be just me.)

 

Any ideas welcome, Sam.

Hi @sambg 

 

Click on the code view and set the hyperlink.

 

There is a typo I can see you not seeing the end tag quite right.

 

<a href="respond-link-url">Click Me!</a>

Hi @abm 

 

I tried that previously but the editor doesn't like it and won't switch from Code view back to HTML.

Because of that I never previously thought to test it but I've tried again and tested it and it does work so that's solved, thanks. I guess the compromise to getting it working is now the body of my email is stuck in Code view. I can live with that.

 

Cheers, Sam.
