hyperlink in send mail step

Dear Experts,

I have used the below code to insert hyperlink in send mail step. The code is working fine in task description of an activity step. But when I use the same in send mail step the code appears as text and I am not getting the hyperlink.

<A HREF = "http://www.google.com">
http://www.google.com
</A>

Can you please tell me how to insert hyperlink in send mail step. I searched the forum but I am not able to arrive at the solution.

KR,

Bharath

    Dear Experts,

    As per my requirement I want to send an url to an external email id from workflow using sendmail step. I see that anchor tag is working for user decision step whereas for send mail I see in SOST that only text http://www.google.com is displayed instead of hyperlink. Can you please tell me whether is there any other way to send url to an external email id.

    KR,

      Hello,

      If you want to send anything more than plain text, you're better off not using SendMail but instead use a task which uses a method which calls fm SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1.

    URL can be sent in mail to MS OUTLOOK or LOTUS NOTES from workflow notification steps. To send the URL, in the send mail Task the XML code is required.

    XML Code:

    <A HREF="&URL&">Link<(><<)>/A>

    URL is container where the required URL is needed to pass through binding.

    Link is the text which will be displayed in the mail body.

    Thanks

    Sanjay
