    How to customize the "My Account" link in the E-mail/Letter?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    When e-mails are sent from the library, the bottom right corner has a link called “My Account”. It has an empty link. How can I localize it?

    Procedure:
    The "Customer Parameters" Mapping Table table's “email_my_account” row defines the content of the link.

    Please select:

    1. Alma > All Mapping Tables (in GENERAL)
    2. At "Customer Parameters" select Actions > Edit
    3. For "email_my_account" select "Customize"
    4. Put the required URL, e.g.
     

    http://www.yoel.com
    

    Additional Information

    If your URL has an ampersand it should be “escaped” (encoded).

    Instead of:

    http://www.yoel.com/primo_library/libweb/action/login.do?loginFn=signin&vid=YLK_VU1
    

    Put:

    http://www.yoel.com/primo_library/libweb/action/login.do?loginFn=signin%26vid=YLK_VU1
    

    Another example URL:

    http://primo.lib.edu/primo_library/libweb/action/myAccountMenu.do?vid=DEFAULT
