    1. URL - Set the protocol if it is secured or not then add the URL

    2. Link to an anchor in the text - Select an anchor by Anchor Name or by Element ID

    3. E-mail - Add the E-mail address, Message Subject and Message Body

  3. If you want to open the link in a new window or a tab, click on the Target tab and select New Window (_blank) option.

Want to add parameters, people attributes, tokens and variables?

You can use what we call Tokens within the links too. When editing an URL, you can add Tokens as {{token}}.

For example if you are passing a people attribute email, then you can enter an URL:{{email}}
