Merge Template Example - Action Links

In this example we've included an HTML table that itself includes several images and two action links. When placing an action link into a merge template, VSys generates a hyperlink, and it can leave that hyperlink open (no trailing </a>) or closed.

Remember that VSys doesn't generate the action link if it's not applicable to the current person or situation. What if you want an action link that says "Come enter your hours here" if present, but not be awkward if it's not available? You can use something like this:
field[[Hours entry|actionlink.SELFHOURS|Come enter your hours here]]
VSys itself made most of this when you inserted the action link. All we did was add some text after the pipe character, and VSys knows to use that as the hyperlink text if and only if it shows the hyperlink.
