Place Hyperlink into generated e-mail

Is there a way that I can place a hyperlink into an e-mail generated from a workflow rule?

I am using the GetHyperLink function to send that hyperlink, but I would also like to create a hyperlink to a file on our network.

Here is what is in my e-mail, I would like to have C_FinanceFilename be a hyperlink rather than just text...

Thanks, Rich


Project: {$Project.Name} requires updating.

Please update your resource needs for the next 2 weeks in the file located at:

      {$C_FinanceFilename}

Also update Clarizen remaining effort and due dates.

{GetHyperLink(CurrentObject())}

Hi Rich,

The email body of a workflow rule supports HTML tags. You can use "href" tag to have hyperlinks to files in the network.

Thanks.  Not being familiar with this could you give me the formatting for the example I gave? 

I would love it to read:

Please update your resource needs for the next 2 weeks in the file located here.

here should hyperlink to the contents of {$C_FinanceFilename} which will contain something like:

P:\epc709_Production_E_Ink_Handle\__Key_documents\3_Invoicing\EPC-709_FinanceSummary.xlsx

Hi Rob,

<a href=
{$C\_FinanceFilename} >here</a>

if you want that to be bold, you can place instead of the string: "Here", the string <b> here </b>

<a href="{$C\_FinanceFilename}">here</a>

and if that doesn't work you can try:

<a href="{tostring($C\_FinanceFilename)}">here</a>

Hi Rachel, 

I have a similar concern where I want to send an email using workflow rule which contains Google form. 

As you said workflow rule support HTML tags 

I prefer to send an email containing HTML form. I already have Embed HTML code.

OR

A Title which is hyperlinked.

Ex: "Take Survey" which I can hyperlink with google form URL
