    That link should be clickable once the notification is received by the user (in an autoresponder) or by you, in an email alert

    @ pdfvg

     Actually I overlooked the fact that having  such TAG as clickable  has not been implemented yet

    However, you can even make clickable the URL link , as explained by Mike_T, you need to do it manually first, then follow these steps in order to make it clickable

    Paste the link into the email body messagge.

    Then , Highlight (or select) the whole URL, copy it, then click the link icon in the screen's toolbar


    Paste the copied URL onto the small Insert/Edit Link popup then click Insert


    If you have further questions, please open a new thread with your particular one
