TIP:

  • Please note that direct links can be used in certain templates but not all direct links can be used with all templates.
  • When generating the direct link, the tag provided in the "URLENCODE value=" must be found in the list of syntax tags of the template you are customizing. Otherwise, data may not be populated.

In our example, the value after URLENCODE value= was <SCHD_ID/>. Therefore, when in the editor to modify my template, I make sure this tag can be found:
