Hi All,

Can you please tell me how to enable the new email from activity timeline feature in Summer 17?

Per link and screenshot

Hi everyone,

I'm setting up a custom html email template for a client to be sent in a scheduled manner to their Leads.  The Lead record contains a URL field called "Site Admin URL" ({!Lead.Site_Admin_URL__c}), and the values of this field are unique to each Lead record.  It also contains a calculated field "Site Admin URL (no prefix" ({!Lead.Site_Admin_URL_no_prefix__c}), which = the Site Admin URL value with its "http://" prefix.

We want to insert the value for the Site Admin URL as a merge field into the template, so when the submitter of the Lead receives an email based on the template, it appears as a live URL link to the path specified as the value to the Site Admin URL field in the Lead.

For some reason, we can't quite get the syntax right to make this happen.  For the approaches below, assume that Site Admin URL value = "http://www.google.com"

We've tried:
1) <a href="{!Lead.Site_Admin_URL__c}">Click here</a>
But if the Site Admin URL value is "http://www.google.com" this code produces a link in the final email that points to:
https://na2.salesforce.com/email/author/%3Ca%20href=

2) <a href="http://{!Lead.Site_Admin_URL_no_prefix__c}">Click here</a>
But if the Site Admin URL value is "http://www.google.com" this code produces no link at all in the final email.

Perhaps this is a simple fix, but I don't know how to get the syntax right.  Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
