Send email button: change subject

Mar 09, 2021

Hi community,

I've got a quick question, maybe someone hast a clever solution:

I want to add a button to the end of a course that triggers an email with a specific subject and content. Seems straight forward, but somehow it doesn't work as intended. This is my approach:

I add the email address, subject and content to the "email field":

email button

It opens an email, as intended, but adds the original Rise email subject (course name) to the end of the email:

Any idea how I can suppress that? Is it possible at all?

Thanks for your help and best regards,

Rise also supports mailto links using the standard link function for text elements, and specifying the subject and body seems to work fine there. When I input the exact same link text into a button element it misbehaved exactly as you described, though. A case of inconsistent parsing, then.

If you aren't wedded to using a button you could fake one by formatting a bit of link text to dress it up as one; maybe use a heading text element, add a background colour, centre it, etc. Probably the easiest workaround to get the result you're after.
