Create email interaction

The Problem

I want to add a clickable link that will open the users email app and populate the email field with my contact email address.

The Solution

Although Blocs doesn’t come with a specific email interaction, it is possible to use the URL interaction to create a clickable link that will open the users email app and populate the email field with my contact email address.

1. First add a link to your page or highlight some text and convert it into a link.

2. Now from the sidebar inspector options, navigate to the section labelled Interactions.

3. From the interaction options set the type of interaction to a URL interaction. This will reveal a text input field for your URL.

4. Now in the URL input field, enter mailto: followed by the email address you would like to populate into the users email application. For Example mailto:hello@mysite.com. Now when this link is clicked the user’s email app will automatically open and create a new email addressed to this contact email.
