MAILTO Functionality Character Limit


MAILTO Functionality Character Limit


I have this issue with the mailto functionality, wherein I am picking up user names for "TO" from the line item 'To', which is formula driven and is picking up more than 1 user. In a particular scenario the line item picks up more than a certain number wherein the character size of the line item exceeds the threshold. Which crashes the Outlook and functionality does not work. 

Is there a work around for this issue or am i doing something incorrectly in the first place. I need the ability to pick up all the Mail IDs which is the requirement and also avoid character limit issue.

Currently I am asking the users to manually copy paste the to mail address but i am looking to automate the whole process. Also, I have figured a solution where i use alias ID say, XYZ@abcdotcom has an alias called 'XYZ' if I just use XYZ it should fetch the mail in the outlook however when i reference the mailto "to" :- to the ALIAS line item, its returning a blank in outlook. Is there some mistake that i am doing. Does Anaplan not pick up texts which does not have dotcom ?

Please help me out ! thanks


Re: MAILTO Functionality Character Limit



Do you have more than 80,000 characters? If yes, then it won't work but if it doesn't cross this threshold then it should work.  



As far as I know aliases don't work, it has to be email id
