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?
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")>>
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" /> <br/><br/> <h3>Welcome to this MOTD!! :)</h3> <br/> <br/>Here's a random picture which will rotate daily: <br/><img src="<<[Random Image]>>" alt="alt text" height="185" width="307" border="0" /> <br/> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.appsheet.com" style="color: #ffffff;font-family: sans-serif;">AppSheet</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.google.com" style="color: #ffffff;font-family: sans-serif;">Google Inc.</a></li> <p> more info goes here... </p> </td> </tr> </table>
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
