If possible, I want to have a few words of text (a question) sitting on a page in SharePoint 2013, which when clicked, automatically opens in a pop-up window, an email template (To: with the address line completed) with some of the body of the email containing other text.]

Is this possible? If yes, how? Have tried searching for this but not getting anywhere so far.

Thanks very much in advance.


  • If your end goal is to collect data/opinions/input from your users, you could look into using SharePoint 2013's Survey app. – Submits Sep 10 '15 at 11:15
  • Why not use a mailto link, if all you want is to open an email? – wjervis Sep 10 '15 at 11:52

This is a standard anchor as a mailto that you would include by using the modify hmtl button, http://webdesign.about.com/od/beginningtutorials/a/aabegin100299.htm.

<a href="mailto:someone@mydomain.com&subject="Site%20Feedback"&body="A%20prefilled%20body">Click to email</a>
  • The only thing that is bad with pre-entered body is that it kills the senders signature. :) – Christoffer Sep 10 '15 at 11:43
