Good day all,

I currently have a button within Experience builder that creates an email (opens in new window - Outlook email) and I'd like to embed the current date/ time into the subject line.

Here's what I currently have in the link url: 

mailto:example@outlook.ca?subject=New%20Dashboard%20Metric%20Request&body=My%20new%20metric%20idea%2...

Does anyone know what the coding would be in order to establish current date/ time in the subject line of the email?

 

Thank you!

There is no way to access the current time from within the link builder options. You would need to develop a custom widget to make a link like this.
