Add url variable to link in email template used for recordset loop in Send Email Behaviour

Add url variable to link in email template used for recordset loop in Send Email Behaviour

I have an email behaviour that is triggered by a ‘MySQLi Update Record’ behaviour. The email recipients are built from a recordset loop.

The email template that is used for the recipient email has a link in it that each recipient clicks to direct them to a web-form.

The problem I am having is I want to bind each recipients Database ID to a URL variable in the link they click so I can personalise the web-form ( pre-populate some of the form fields ) on the webpage they each get directed to.

Because the emails are sent via the recordset loop I can not work out how I can get the correct url variable ( ID ) into the link in each generated email.

What I am currently doing is directing them to a page which displays a list of all recipients where they select their name from the list which directs them to the web-form page. This works because I can directly access the links which is built from a repeat region from a record set and so I can place the ID from each database record in a URL variable in the link.

I did enquire about this over a year ago with Ray and he advised that I would probably need a support ticket. after a couple of failed attempts to connect on Skype, I had to put the project on hold

Thanks in Advance
