When creating a short message within Pyn, you now have the option to add a mailto link to email addresses. Mailto links are used to redirect to an email address instead of a web page URL. When an employee clicks on the Mailto link, their default email client on their computer will open and suggests sending a message to the email address mentioned in the Mailto link.

How it's done

To include a Mailto link in a short message follow these steps:

  1. Create or edit an existing Pyn.

  2. In the short message, add your desired email address.

  3. Highlight your email address and select the link option πŸ”— from the tool bar.

  4. The pop-up modal will be pre-populated with Mailto: + the email highlighted

  5. Edit or save your email address.


Q: How can I tell the link has been added?

A: in the editor the email will be underlined, and when you hover over the email a pointer will appear. In the Preview the email address will appear to be an alternative color than the rest of t text.

Q: Am I able to create a mailto link in the long message?

A: At this time the mailto link is only supported in the short message.
