Send URL in email notification473

fixingthingsguy private msg quote post Address this user
Is there a way to stick a URL(of the dashboard) in the email message and remove all the other template entries, so that the URL stands out? i.e. I only want to send the URL of dashboard, and nothing else in the email.
I want to notify the user to use the URL(dashboard) as it provides useful information to follow the activity of their device that has just triggered an alarm.
Suggestions appreciated. I may be doing this all wrong.
Regards

As a followup, I'm wondering if there is a way to send a "freeform" email.
I currently send the URL this way(as a workaround), see below, and I'd rather it be just the URL only. Thanks

Yes.

Go into Component Studio
Expand Event Action Packages on the left
Open your action package and edit the email action




1. Delete the entire body
2. Add your hyper-link text and select it
3. Click the hyper-link button
4. Enter the actual hyper-link
5. Click OK, Save your Action, Save the Action Package

A couple of things:
1) Some email recipients cannot view emails with HTML and will only see what you enter on the Text Body tab so you should also paste the link in the Text part of the email editor and mention that they should paste the URL into their browser
2) Some corporations now prevent their employees from receiving emails with hyper-links in them. Those users will never get the email. So make sure you're sending the email to users who can accept emails with hyper-links. We know this, because some of our users never get the GS account registration email because it has a link in it.
3) You can also put whatever you want in the Subject line of the email.

Thanks for the precise steps. Works just like you documented. And I also have noted the way to get around any IT restrictions on sending URLs to use when the situation arises.
