Accept URLs with Curly Brackets


Accept URLs with Curly Brackets

We're hoping eventually there will be an easier way for Marketo emails to accept emails that contain special characters such as $ or { or }. Increasingly due to GDPR laws we receive URLs for our emails that contain these characters as part of a required GDPR URL string.


Here is an example of a URL:${GDPR}&gdpr_consent=${GDPR_...]


Through Marketo support we figured out the only workaround is to manual change each of those characters to the URL encoding:[timestamp]


Wish there was an easy way for Marketo to automatically convert these special characters for you, rather than giving you an error message when you try to save!
