Tokens Inside of a Token (nesting tokens)

Is this not possible?

I have footer links on each landing page, the footer links are deployed via a token {{my.footer-links}}, which contains 3 links.

I went inside the {{my.footer-links}} token (rich text), and tried to edit the HTML of one of the links by adding this: ?utm_medium={{my.utm_medium}}&utm_source={{my.utm_source}}&utm_campaign={{my.utm_campaign}}

Unfortunately, the {{my.utm_medium}}, {{my.utm_campaign}} and {{my.utm_source}} are not being populated

Thanks.

I was totally referencing a popular presentation on Marketo Tokens. I wish I could claim that one. I busted out when I heard that the first time as well. ; )

Dan's comment below is the way to go.

Hi Josh - what about program tokens inside of a calendar file token? I've found that this works, but not consistently. Any tips?

These are the exception - they work in the body of the calendar file - and they're a great place to put the {{member.webinar url}} token.

Thanks Nicholas - have you come across any inconsistencies with the token value displaying? I love the idea, but feel like I can't trust them. Also - do they not work in the subject of the calendar token?

Tokens do not work in the subject of a calendar token.

It's quite a fiddly field, and it takes a bit of mental arithmetic to get it to work when testing. IE, it will only work when testing if someone is a legitimate member of the program etc.
