Hi @saurabhdangwal 

When using the Gmail’s “send email” action, pick the HTML option for “body type” as shown and then you can add hyperlink as it’s done in HTML using the <a> tag.

Just jumping in to summarize the answer here! :)

It is indeed possible to add links to Gmail emails using <a> tags. For anyone that is unfamiliar with how to create a link using an <a> tag you’d want to use the following markup and just replace the example website URL and link text: 

<a href="https://www.webpagethelinkshouldgoto.com">Link text goes here</a>

More about how to use HTML to create links and format text in emails can be found here: Format HTML emails

And as as robschmidt mentioned, you’ll want to select the Html option on the Body Type field on the Send Email Gmail action. This ensures that the email isn’t sent as plain text.
