Auto populate and sending email

Hello, community. I've tried the "send email" function in Storyline, but it only appears to open a new email window that must be manually filled and sent. I would like to set up a trigger in Storyline 360 that will, behind the scenes:

  1. automatically open a new email,
  2. auto-populate a predetermined recipient address,
  3. auto-populate the subject with prewritten text,
  4. auto-populate the body with prewritten text,
  5. and then automatically send that email.

I'm fine with using Javascript if necessary. Any ideas are appreciated.

This is all relatively easy to set up, until the 'and then automatically send that email' bit!

If you want the email to be sent automatically, you'll need to involve a server.

Otherwise, a link like this should do the trick:

mailto:robert@email.com?Subject=Hi%21&Body=How%20are%20you%3F%20I%20trust%20that%20you%20are%20well

But the user will have to manually hit send (and have a default email client configured).

You can generate a link like this here.
