I am using the Button widget and am trying to link the button to open up a new window to send an email. So far I have not been able to find success in this.

I set

Link to to Web Address

URL to mailto:example@organization.org

Open in tried all 3 options

Is there a correct format to do this, or it is simply not supported?

Thanks

Currently, the only way to add this is via the embed widget via code. For example, <a href="mailto:somebody@company.com ">Send email</a>. We have this logged as an issue for us to look at how we can improve this within Experience Builder.

Starting from AGOL 10.3, you can configure mailto and some other URI schemes directly in the 'Set Link > URL' for widgets like Button, Image, etc. See details in:

Unfortunately, the "code" section of the embed widget does not connect to the selected feature or to the data as far as I can tell, which makes this of limited usefulness. We need to have a different "mailto" link for every feature in our feature class. Is a custom widget our only remaining option?

https://veilmail.io is good if you want to hide your email address as a URL
