I'm using Cp5.5 (but can use Cp6 if required), and I have a click box that when a user clicks it, generates an email to a specified email address. Is there a way I can specify what the email subject is?
Thanks in advance!
Yep, there is! In each class I facilitate I show folks how to do exactly that!
Oh, you need to know now and not want to wait? Okay. Fair enough.
It's pretty simple really. Where you type the email address, you just tack on a question mark followed by the word Subject= and add your desired subject. It should look like this:
SomeOne@SomeWhere.com?Subject=Any subject you like here
But if you try that, Captivate will squawk at you and tell you it's not a valid email address or some other such nonsense. So I have a workaround for that.
Have you ever visited a URL and noticed the browser title bar looking like this?
What Captivate balks at are the spaces. It doesn't like the spaces. And those %20 values you see in the URL are spaces. So to get past things and make your email link work, you just insert %20 everywhere you would typically want a space to appear.
Hope this helps a bit... Rick
