"Clicks Link in Email" for Dynamic URL

I've created a program that is triggered based on an email click, however, the link I want to track is not static. It is a dynamic field pulled from the database called "URL".

From the dropdown criteria, I see an option for "{{lead.URL:default=edit me}}", however, that didn't seem to work.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

HI David,

Using the token in you trigger constraint cannot work, unfortunately.

Is there any part of the URL that would be common to all leads and that you could use with a "contains" operator?

Hi David,

That's a classical : remove the "http://" from you URL field and add it to your email link, that should read: "http://{{lead.URL:default=edit me}}"

If you do not do this, Marketo will not track the clicks on the link.

Re: "Clicks Link in Email" for Dynamic URL

Hi Gregoire,

Ok, I've changed the url in my database to not include the "http://" part, however, I still can't seem to get it to work.

My trigger is based on "Clicks Link in Email" > "Link contains" = {{lead.URL:default=edit me}}

It was working perfectly before when I was testing the trigger with static URLs (link contains = http://test.com), so I know it's not the trigger overall. It must be the criteria.

How do I specific the dynamic URL criteria in the trigger?

That's unfortunate, but thanks!

Fortunately, we do have a common element in the URL so it should work

Did you not see my answer?  Much easier than having to know the URL.

Are you filtering for this email click within the smart list of a smart campaign?  If so, you cannot use tokens in the smart lists of smart campaigns.  Although I would love for this capability some day.

First, +1 on Dan Stevens​ the {{lead.URL field}} token is just what you'd drop in the Email copy or link value before it runs.

What does the actual URL and field URL look like here?

For example, is the base URL structure enough to trigger on?

Clicks Link In Email CONTAINS info.firm.com/XYZ.html or something? If anyone who clicks the link should go through the next campaign? Is there a routing rule based on a code?

Is the Unique URL Field contain special code that would determine routing?
