How can I add Personalized URL's to my emails?

I have been trying to add personalized URL's to the links in my emails for some time now, but this email system isn't importing the field i need correctly. I've tried Live Chat and Emailed, but have not been successful on finding a solution. 


In the email copy editor, I insert a link.


Text to display as link: Visit Capture

Link URL:  https://capturehighered.com/?cbe_email={Email Address}


In this query string, 'cbe_email' is the parameter I want to use, and the email address is the value. When the link is clicked it should appear as:




However, it is not importing that field correctly. This is how it appears:




Please help!


Hello @JacquelineP617,


Thank you for coming back into the community to talk with us!  It looks like the syntax there isn't quite the same as what is being used by our system.  To pull information from your contact list, it would end with "?subscriber.custom_field_name"


So in your example you would be using   https://capturehighered.com/?subscriber.cbe_email

Creating an html active link from your contact details like this is something that's only available in the advanced editor, as it requires custom written html to function properly. If you'd like, I can have someone from our Advanced Technical team reach out to you as well.
