Send and Track breaking Outlook Bookings links

Hi all,


Our sales team uses the Marketo Send and Track feature to track Sales Emails through Marketo.

They often include a link to their Outlook Bookings calendar, so people can schedule a phone call with them.

We've just noticed that the Send and Track feature, when it adds Marketo tracking script to this link, breaks the link. 

Does anyone know why this would be and how to remedy this? Or is it possible to not track a specific individual link in an Outlook email sent through Send and Track?

FYI, this is what the Outlook Booking link looks like:

https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/examplecalendar@ourdomain.onmicrosoft.com/bookings/?mkt_t...etcetcetc

If you remove the mkt_tok parameters it works fine, but with it the link returns a Bad Request error.

Any advice gratefully received!


James

Not so much tracking script as just a query param.

If the remote server can't handle an extra qp that's really their fault (even if the qp isn't used).  Do you get a 404 when you visit the page? Can you DM me an actual link so I can test it?

Hi Sanford - I think you need to add me as a contact for me to be able to send you a DM?

It's not allowing me to send you a DM, unfortunately. Could you try DMing me?
