    Hi Chris, 

    as Joel said: URL shortner is the solution. Globiflow sends SMS via clickSend. How to handle URLs with clickSend see here: https://help.clicksend.com/SMS/can-i-insert-a-url-hyperlink-into-an-sms-message?kb_language=en_US

    SMS format does not allow for html so you can not do the tags needed to make a "Take our survey here" as a clickable link. You might use a bit.ly link shortener so it is Click This Link (bit.ly/????) to take our survey.

    Hi Rainer and Joel, thanks for your guidance here. The bottom line for my situation is, shortening a link is easy but SMS doesn't support the auto fill references in the Podio web form link so it has to be long to work. I will work around it.

    By the way, are either of you available to provide your services to help us with some very complex Podio procedures?

    Among them are: 

    Pulling information e.g. a contact name and other details from App1 into App2 when an inbound email creates a new item in App2. If not, can you recommend a freelancer?

    I give you an example:

    In a simple text:

    [Get a New iphone](https://www.apple.com/mx/)

     

    In calculation use "" to separate and + :

    "[" + "Get a New iphone" + "]" + "(" + "https://www.apple.com/mx/" + ")"

    Alejandro, why so complicated? In your example it's all text - you don't need any + and only 2 ", one at the beginning and one at the end: 
    "[Go to my homepage](https://myhomespace.com)"

    Hello Rainer Grabowski
    I have this hyperlink in my Podio, however when I add it in an email in Globiflow it is adding an extra line instead of being part of the same sentence.

    I am attaching the email for your reference, do you know how can I change that setting so it is part of the same paragraph?

    Thanks!

    Add a custom variable before the Send Email action, name it link

    link = strip_tags([token for the Podio field the hyperlink is in])

    Then use the variable in the email body.
