Trigger Outlook from by clicking on text Box

Hi All

I want to create a text box with action- so that when someone click the text box, it should open the Outlook mail.

Is this feasible in Qlik Sense?

Thanks

Re: Trigger Outlook from by clicking on text Box

Hi,

I have done this as an opne url action in a extension object (Vizlib), like this.

This is a very simple solution and can be more advanced I think.

1. One table with mailadress.

2. Selection object with mailadress, for selection.

3. The 'Vizlib Text Object', with action "Open URL" and URL "= 'mailto:' & FieldValue(mailadress)

4. Choose an mailadress (2) and press (3), that startsup you local mail program.

Hope this gives some ideas.

Michael

Hi

I tried this. But this does not open a new outllook mail from my outllook application, instead it redirects me to the organizations home page.

Am I missing something?

Thanks

Hi,

You can do this an expression sth like this

='mailto:'&[Contact.EmailAddress1]


If you want to add the subject dynamically to mail

='mailto:'&[Contact.EmailAddress1]&'?subject='&OpportunitySubject


You should change measure representation as "URL"

Thanks. This works fine. But can we do it using a text box as well?
