Can a link such as "https://form.jotform.com/220735785213153/prefill/624250753034b20eba74b64a3080" be placed in a custom field for a contact?

Hello @BENJAMINS107,

 

Thank you for that video! Yes, you are doing everything absolutely correct. You won't see those links in action until you send it to someone with those custom fields attached to their email address under contact details. You will want to add these custom fields to your own email address as well in order to see it in preview mode. Please go to the contacts tab in order to add that those unique custom fields to each email address as shown in the screenshot.

Hello @BENJAMINS107,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! Custom fields can have any contact specific details inserted. If your customers all need a specific link inserted in your campaign like the one you have above, that is completely possible! Thanks.

Well, can the link be clickable in an email, and if so, how should I do it?

For some reason I cannot get this link to work. What am I doing wrong?

Hello @BENJAMINS107,

 

This custom field link will only appear if your customers have this link attached to a custom field in their contact details. A way to test this would be to add this link to your contact details as a custom field as shown in the article above or in this screenshot below:
