  • 1.  Add an Embeded Report to Mailto Email

    Posted 01-03-2022 10:17
    Hello! 
    Is there a way to add an Embeded Report from a form to a MailTo email?  I have a button on a form to create an email based on the current record.  The form has an Embeded report for each record.  Is there any way to pull the embeded report for the specific record into the email generated by the button? 

    Example: 
    "mailto:"&""&[Email 1]&
    "\n"&"?subject="&"\n"&[Record]&""&
    "&body="&"Location Name: "& [Location Name] 
    "%0D"
    &"field2"&
    "%0D"
    &"field3"&
    --- NEED TO ADD EMBEDED REPORT --- 
    ""

    No, the MAILTO function is very basic.  The best you could hope to achieve would be to include a link to a report that the user would click on.

    But if you were going to do that, then you my as well just try to include a link to the location record. Itself.  Are the recipients of the emails Users?

    Unfortunately the email recipients are not users.

    Is there another way to email the current form where the email doesn't come from Quickbase?

    An email notification of type OPEN can be sent to anyone with an email address even if they are not a user.


    When you first build the email notification there was a radio button at the top where you have a choice of open or recipient. You need to choose OPEN at that time. If for some reason that does not work for you then you need to put in a ticket to support to enable your realm to send external emails. If you do that then you can send an email which has the form in the email itself then the user would see the embedded report on that form. This assumes that the that embedded report is not so long that it won't fit on one page.
