Attach Link to body of email - file path

Hi,

While using Send Outlook Mail activity i want to add the link to a file in a shared folder.

Can this be done?

Thanks,
Shawn

You can simply try adding the path of the file in the shared folders in the attachments property of send outlook mail activity. If you have access to the shared folders, it will retrieve the file and attach to the mail @shawnmurray

Yes, i did think of doing it that way, its just the users are used to how it is in the body of the mail with the link but it should hopefully be okay.
thanks @HareeshMR

Pardon, I don’t understand clearly @shawnmurray :slight_smile:

Does this make more sense?

Yes thats exactly what i want to do @HareeshMR

Simply make the entire body as HTML and add the hyperlink using the attribute tag as

<a href = " + the path you have " + >Click Me <//a> @shawnmurray

Please check if you have marked IsBodyHTML check box :slight_smile:

and href should be like this : "Click Me "

This is the one missing right?

<p><a href="https://www.google.com">google</a></p>

The link line should be like this , But I’m not sure why it is not working as it is working for me

It turns out i was ,missing the “=” in the href tag :upside_down_face:

Thanks for your help! @HareeshMR
