Workflow Notification View/Edit Link Doesn’t Work on Outlook 365 Online

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is a PSA regarding an issue we encountered for a client recently while implementing Workflow approvals for Purchase Order Processing.

When the user received and opened the email notification with a View/Edit link, for some users the link displayed as a standard blue hyperlink, but it was not clickable, and for other users it just displayed as black text:

When I took a look at the source of the email, the a tag was empty:

<a href="">PR0000025</a>

After doing some testing on this, the problem appeared only to be the web based Outlook in Office 365; opening the same email in a desktop based Outlook client allowed the link to work correctly:

We logged this as a call with the Dynamics GP Support team, who were able to confirm out findings. The issue does not lie with Microsoft Dynamics GP; if it did the desktop Outlook client would not work either.

The issue is that Office 365 is stripping the link; I am assuming this is because it is not recognised as a valid link. It does not start http as a normal web link does, but with dgpp.

I have advised the client of this and suggested they speak to their Office 365 partner about logging this call with the 365 team and see what can be done in that area.

What should we write about next?
