Using "mailto:" vs "https://"

Is there a way to use the "mailto:[email protected]" rather than the traditional "https://" url link?

I've tried and simply receive an error. Would be a nice feature as I am creating prototypes and clients are asking for the email address within to be linkable.

Thanks.

Hi, one solution I just came up with is to use TinyURL to create a custom URL that remaps to your mailto link, and put that in your Craft / InVision prototype.

I'd tried this and it works for mailto: links. Here's a sample link you could put in your prototype and see it in action:

Hi Heather,

Thank you for taking the time to post this in Community!

While external URL hotspots don't offer support for "mailto:" links at the moment, this is a feature that our Support and Product teams are tracking for interest.

I'll go ahead and open a ticket on your behalf to let the teams know you're interested in this potential feature. Please keep an eye out for an email indicating that we’ve formally tracked your feedback on this.

Hope you have a great day,
Jeremy
