How to create a Hyperlink
Here you will learn how to create a hyperlink and why it is useful when sending out your itineraries, iBrochures and product content from Wetu.
In this article
A hyperlink is a reference to data (in this case your Wetu itinerary links) that the client can directly follow either by clicking on or by hovering over. If a hyperlink is clicked on your client will go directly to the information you want them to see without them having to copy and paste the URL.
Using a hyperlink is useful when the URL (i.e. www.URL.com) is too long or unattractive.
Each email program will look a little different, however, we have tried to cover the basics. Most of the time the process is very similar.
Step 1: Copy the URL
The URL is the website address at the top of the Internet browser. Highlight the URL and copy this text to your clipboard.
Step 2: Highlight the Text
Type the email you would like to send to the client, and highlight the text you would like to hyperlink.
Step 3: in Gmail
Select the Chain Icon at the bottom of your email pop-up.
Paste the URL into the section marked 'link to'.
Step 3: In Mac Mail
Select 'Edit' from the top menu and then select 'Add Hyperlink'.
Paste the URL into the pop-up block.
Step 3: in Outlook
Right-click on the highlighted text and select Link or Hyperlink (this will depend on the type of mail you are using) in the menu that appears.
A pop-up like the below will appear.
The Text to display will be the text you highlighted. Paste the URL into the Address box at the bottom.
Step 4: Complete
Once you select 'Ok' your text will turn blue (or a colour alternative to black) to indicate it has been hyperlinked. The email recipient will be able to open the web address by clicking on the highlighted text.
