Email merge fields in hyperlink

Hi all, hope you can help with this one.

 

I want to merge out emails that have a custom url that uses fields from Act. e.g.

 

---

Hi xxxx,

 

Please click on your link here.

 

Sign off

---

 

Where link here points to something like: http://www.mysite.com/custom-page-COMPANY-CONTACT.html

 

The COMPANY and CONTACT would be example fields taken from Act.

 

What is the best way to do this? I have tried adding a hyperlink (with merge fields in the 'Linked To') in a template, but it didn't work - the fields are not merged in. I have managed to do this in the old Act 6 by editing the HTML template directly, but I am not sure what the tpl format is.

 

Kind regards,

 

Matthew

Pretty sure you can't do this if using Outlook ... as it uses Word

You might need to look at one of the third-party tools like SwiftPage, MergeMaster! or MailChimp
