Interface with Outlook from Dashboard

I have a Splunk dashboard that displays an email address as one field. The client would like to be able to click on the email address and then launch an Outlook email form with the email and subject line populated. The user would be able to further edit the email before they initiate the send. Is this possible to do from a Splunk dashboard?

Give this a try.

Let's say the field name in the panel is "email_address". Edit the drilldown for the panel and choose "Link to custom URL". For the URL, use:

mailto:$row.email_address$

This should open up a new email in whatever the default email client is for the workstation. So as long as Outlook is the default client, then this should work.

Could you please tell me how I can set the email subject dynamically?
