I have a timer job with PlaceHolder ID and attritube is #. It checks a list and sends email every night. I created a EMAILTemplate list to send email. The body of the email is Multiple Lines of Text column. I am trying to send a link in body.

. When i save the item, it is converting to . So the user cannot open the link in the body of the email. I prefer to modify my EmailTemplate list rather than changing PlaceHolderAttritube.

FYI: It worked for a year but recently i modified a item in that list and saved it then it started behaving like this. Am using IE 9 right now.

  • Try converting it to a Rich Text field. May 4 '15 at 17:42
  • Converting it to Rich Text worked but it is diaplaying entire url. I want that url to be embedded to Title of that item. Is it possible?

  • You said you are using a timer Job, why can't you format it in Code? Also make sure you are storing the URL in Rich Text as <a href="url">Title</a> May 4 '15 at 18:22
  • Lets say url is www.google.com/ID=#ID# . and Title is Google . ID of that item is 1. I converted to rich text and typed <a href="url">Title</a> . I am receiving email exactly as <a href="www.google.com/ID=1">Google</a> .
