Personalized Links

Is there a way to have a link with data from a custom field.

Example:
CLICKING HERE text is a link to a URL with the user ID put into it.
ezsub.net/isapi/foxisapi.dll/main.sv.run?jt=s&P=PF0&S=OSEAS1003&R=[ID]-[IDCHKDIG]&SBTYPE=QR&PGTP=B

[ID] is a custom field
[IDCHKDIG] is a custom field

Thanks,

Yes, and you do it pretty much just like that, by inserting the correct tag for the custom field value you want to use. See http://www.campaignmonitor.com/blog/post/2645/smart-ways-to-use-custom-fields/ for more ideas.

I added a link formatted in this way. It is not working the test email, is this ok? The other custom fields are not working in the test as well ([FIRSTNAME], [LASTNAME], etc..).

Also, do I need to disable link tracking in order for this to work? If so can you let me know how.

Thanks

I was sending the test email after I imported the email. I have gone through the import process and at the second point "Test and Define Delivery" you have the opportunity to take a random person to send in the test. It is working fine now. I didn't want to just delete my last post because someone searching the forums may have the same issue. Also, do I did not need to disable link tracking in order for this to work.

Thanks,
