I have fields:

email:

subject:

body:

I want to use this hyperlink to open an email with those parameters:

<a href="mailto:[email protected]?subject=This is a subject. You can't use certain characters in here. But we should be able to control that.!&body=Here is the body. Same problem with special characters.">Link to send an email</a>

This can be formed with this formula:

="<a href=" + "\"" + "mailto:" + [email protected] + "?subject=" + [email protected] + "!&body=" + [email protected] + "\"" + ">Link to send an email</a>"

edit: is it possible that I cannot insert a hyperlink on this forum? I can insert an emoji, a picture, media, and a file attachment. But no hyperlink?

    Hi @James Keuning

    I developed a client solution recently where they click on an alert to send their client an email from their mobile phone, like a mobile-specific CRM.

    It would look something like this.

    mailto:{{Email}}?subject=Subject%20line%20information&body=PasteHere

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
