Per this article, “What (sic) HTML tags are supported in GMail,” the <a> tag is supported, however, I am wondering if the <a> tag’s `<a ping="URL">”` attribute is supported (along with the more common `<a href="URL">”` attribute which works just fine)?
When I open the following HTML in a browser:
<a href="craigslist.org" ping="https://hooks.zapier.com/hooks/catch/8675309/biv0iDs/?recordID=rec6q2j4pSPxwWjcl&emailResponse=a%20ping">PRESS TO PING</a>
...it creates a hyper text link to Craigslist. When I click the link, it also invokes a ping to the Zapier Webhook URL. The Webhook trigger Catch Hook URL catches the data, and a subsequent Zapier Action updates via the recordID query parameter and updates the appropriate record’s field with the emailResponse parameter.
When I include this HTML code in a GMail, the result is only loading Craigslist - no Hook Catch :\
Is this a GMail restriction? Zapier?
Which attributes of the HTML <a></a> tag are supported?
