HTML Tags in Custom Fields

Hi, is it possible to add HTML to a custom field? I want to add anchor tags so they are clickable when the custom field is added to the email. I know some email clients will automatically make a URL clickable, but I want to display text for the hyperlink, not a URL.

Hey there! Yes, you could certainly have HTML in a custom field, however, you might just want to have the unique part of the URL as the custom field value instead of the full HTML link. For example, you could do something like this:

<a href="http://www.yourwebsite.com/login.php?user=[id,fallback=]">Login to your account</a>
