    Email: Make email field in notification clickable

    Asked by tinasdancin on September 25, 2013 at 06:16 PM

    Is there any way I can make an email submission clickable when we receive?

    For example:  I added an Email Address (required) field.

    When I receive the submission, I would like for the Email Adress field to be "clickable" (with the Mailto:) html option so that we can simply click on it to email the person back instead of having to copy an paste.

    You can make a clickable link by adding a URL link to your email notification.


    1. Open your Email Notification and add some text and highlight the text so you can insert the mailto:someone@some.com.

    2. You can test the link by sending a test submission and see if the mailto link works.


    Let us know if you need further help.

    In addition to the above steps all you need to do is locate the email ID ex. {email} It should look like this ex. mailto:{email}. Please take a look at the attached screenshot.
