You have to output a fully-fledged <a> tag, but yes.

This is great!  Doing a little victory dance here and about to test this in my next campaign.

I also see that the preview feature now includes the ability to pick a specific lead and see email script tokens render in the preview the way that they will in the live message.  This is a new (or at least recent) feature, right?  I'm loving it - you can pick a list to filter your leads, then navigate directly to a specific lead.  Huge testing win for anyone using email script tokens.

This is great that this now works but a really bad implementation. Because now logic has to spread all over the place. I can't just create a token for the url, its really a token for the whole HTML including the <a> tag.

Hi!

We have created an Email Template using Email Editor 2.0.

The links are being defined using variables:

<meta class="mktoString" id="c1ctaURL" mktoname="C1 - CTA URL" mktomodulescope="true" default="#" />

We applied the workaround mentioned in a few posts above in order to get these links tracked:

WILL BE TRACKED

#set ( $mylink = "www.marketo.com" )

<a href="http://${mylink}">Click Here!</a>

So the tag <a> in our template looks like:

<a href="https://${c1ctaURL}"

And of course, the c1ctaURL doesnt include any http

But after several tests, the links are not being tracked.

Are we doing something wrong here? Is there another solution to get this working since this post is from 2016?

Thanks!

Doesn't sound like this is related to a user-authored Email Script token, so should be a new thread.

Sorry about that, I created already a new thread with the issue.

Thanks!
