My target is, that a user can create an email with a defined receiver and a defined subject with one click.
I am using Confluence 5.10.8
The solution to create a new email is very easy.
Insert -> Link, enter the email adress and i have my link including the mailto-function.
Now i want to use the mailto-function including a subject like on this page
Unfortunately i don't know how to add this macro
And i don't know how to use the " report macro" from the second link in this questions, because i can't find this macro.
Does someone have an idea with perhaps some screenshots?
Thank you in Advance!
The example you gave works.
Essentially, you just write your text on the Confluence page, highlight it, click Insert Link, and choose Web link. Then you can paste this in the address:
Then, when clicking that link in the saved page, it automatically opens an email window with the recipient and the subject already filled in. I've tested this in Confluence 6.5.0.
In terms of the Reporting Macro, I'm not really sure what Heidi is referring to. It could possibly be the Reporting Macro from ServiceRocket.
On Confluence Cloud, I've been able to set the `subject` but when I add `body` the link is lost and you are left with blue underlined text. In the editor you can create a link like this:`mailto:email@example.com?subeject=my%20subject&body=my%20body` but as Derek mentions above, it fails silently and rather inelegantly during publishing.
Perhaps worth noting, you don't need to explicitly add `%20` for spaces, when creating the links, Confluence will insert them for you.
Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to meet you.
The specific instructions on this thread are for Confluence Server as it was 2 years ago, but the idea is still the same for Confluence Cloud.
I've created a video below that will help you to do this in Cloud on the new editor, as I suspect this is what you are using.
Could you give this a try and let me know if it works?
I'm using the new editor, and I just formatted my link like this, and it works:
When I click this link, it opens up the email like this, which looks right to me:
Can you let me know how that goes?
Thank you for following-up on this thread. It's not possible to use variables in the Link Macro, and would likely require writing a User Macro which is only possible in Confluence Server.
You could also check out some of the various add-ons available from Atlassian Marketplace. There may be one available that can help you with this requirement.
It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
