Hyperlink in email body not working

I have a compose email action. Within the body I am trying to use HYPERLINK but when the email opens it only show the actually link rather than the words I am wanting used. Is this a bug?

Hi.

Take a look at Phil’s answer in this previous thread. Does this possibly apply to your situation here?

I don’t think so… I’m not trying to use any images or even any columns. I’m just wanting HYPERLINK(“link”, “Click Here”)

Something like this, then?

<<HYPERLINK("https://www.appsheet.com", "AppSheet home page")>>

getting an error message with that

Please use with your email body…

yes, sorry I was overthinking your question, @Aleksi is right, if you use the “body” field then you can insert various and regular html, e.g. the following chunk of html works fine… best, -Ty

 <table border="0" width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center" bgcolor="#42bde7" style="text-align: left;">
<tr valign="top" width="100%">
<td valign="top">     

<img src="https://www.appsheet.com/Content/img/logo/NewLogo/600px/Reverse%20color%20-%20White%20-%20Horizontal.png" alt="alt text" width="130" border="0" />

This is a compose email action - not a send email workflow. It seems to me that these have to be done within the expression builder and using HTML does not work.

@McKenna_Killion Did you figure it out? I am also trying to use the HYPERLINK() in an action of type Send Email.

No I was not ever able to get it to work.

I end up using the Worflow email which offers more options
