Send an email

This module is similar to a web link, however instead of loading a web page, it opens a new email.

By default, the module specifies a template URL that you can replace. The template includes an email address and a message subject for you to replace. When the reader clicks on the module, their email application will open and a new message will be generated with the email address and message subject automatically filled in.

The URL field specifies an email address, this is prefixed by mailto:, and a message subject, prefixed by ?Subject=. Spaces are only permitted in the message subject.

  • To begin select Manage for your issue, followed by Interactivity
  • Select the Link module category from the Interactivity Module palette chrome_2018-01-26_10-26-51.png

  • Click and drag the area into the position that you would like to make interactive
  • In the URL field replace the placeholder 'email@address.com' with the email address you would like to use and the placeholder 'Message Subject' with the subject you would like to use.
  • Select Save.
