How can i create a link to create an email with a subject Edited

Hi!

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. 

(https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf51/using-a-link-to-create-a-new-email-message-336169395.html)

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

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Could-I-create-a-mailto-link-with-subject-that-dynamically-fills/qaq-p/272015

Unfortunately i don't know how to add this macro 

"<a href="mailto:m.mustermann@domain.com?subject=Here%20is%20the%20subject">linkname</a>"

into confluence.

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!

Hi Jürgen,

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:

mailto:m.mustermann@domain.com?subject=Here%20is%20the%20subject

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.

Kind Regards,
Shannon
