URLs in Email Script Token not tracking

Version 2

    Issue Description
    URLs generated by a Velocity script token are not tracking when a person clicks on the link in an email

    Issue Resolution
    Velocity scripting enforces strict formatting of links in order for them to be tracked:

      • The URL must be part of a fully formed <a> tag.  No other type of link tag will work
      • Links must not be outputted from within a for or foreach loop


    To ensure links are tracked properly, set the entire path inside a variable and then print the variable.

     

     

     

    Correct:

    #set($url = "www.example.com/${object.id}")

    <a href="http://${url}">Link Text</a>

     

    Correct:

    <a href="http://www.example.com/${object.id}">Link Text</a>

     

    Incorrect:

    <a href="${url}">Link Text</a> (missing http/https)

    <a href="{{my.link}}">Link Text</a> (missing http/htpps, cannot reference an outside my.token)

    <page xlink:type="simple" xlink:href="https://www.example.com">Click me</page> (must use an <a> tag)
