I want to create a 'send email' button that will send an email to an individual in the db that includes a link in the body of the text that they can click on to go to a survey site.
links shouldn't be a problem - you should be able to paste links into FM emails, as long as they're fully formed. You can also use "emailto:email@", I believe. (It's been a while.)
Edit: as noted below "mailto:", not "emailto:"
the protocol should be:
however, modern email clients should be able to identify an email address without the protocol and present a dialog (on hover and/or click) or drop-down to do something with the link.
I knew that, but typed emailto anyway.
If you send via a Send Mail script the following:
Send Mail [ Send via E-mail Client; To: aaaaa::FieldB; Subject: "whatever"; Message: "Here is an email address:¶¶firstname.lastname@example.org¶¶here is a url:¶¶https://community.filemaker. com/thread/166287" ]
… both the email address and the URL will be converted into live links by the email client.
keywords - that is may be converted, not will be converted.
thus the *many* requests/ideas on this forum for HTML-formatted emails, so that we can precisely create hyperlinks in email...
Fair enough. That particular script line work in my test, but I take the point that it may not alway be so.
