Turn an Email URL into a Clickable Button

I often send emails to the rest of the employees when I create a new page in our Wiki.  Instead of sending the boring URL, I'd like to turn the link into a colorful button.  (Just to show them I know some Lotus tricks). I've done it before, but now I can't remember what I did.  When I click HotSpot>Button, I make the button just fine.  However I'm having trouble associating the link with the button.  It seems not as straightforward as it did in Lotus 7.  In 8.5 you get 'Add Action' at the bottom of the screen and after the next box pops up....that's where I get thrown off.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Your best bet would be to use URL Hotspot

Check Help document = <b>Creating link hotspots
</b>
You can use the Hotspot button to do the same thing but be warned that this will no doubt require the ECL to allow you to run as a trusted source. If this is not set for you to run the commands there will be an error on the clients machine.
