URL with Microsoft bookings

Hi! I have used bookme in the past and was able to use the link function to have a snippet that my students can click to book a time with me. I switched to Bookings and the link function will not work. While the link in in the snippet, when I put the snippet in Google voice, the link does not populate, the name of the link shows up but not the link itself. Any help is appreciated.

If you copy and paste text containing a link into the Google Voice, does the copy and pasted link work? If it doesn't, it sounds like Google Voice doesn't support it and Text Blaze links won't work either.

It's probably best to replace the link in your snippet with the URL. I suspect the viewer program on the other side of Google Voice will make URL's clickable by default.

Hi, I can paste a link directly into Google voice and it works. I have been using Text Blaze with Google voice for over a year and this problem just recently started. When I put a Text Blaze snippet into Google voice, the links within snippets are not working in Google Voice.

Can you share a screenshot of where in Google Voice you are using Text Blaze and pasting in the text?

If I copy text including a hyperlink and paste it into the Google Voice SMS field the link is stripped. "test link" in the following screenshot should be a hyperlink but it was removed when I pasted in the text.

However, even that did not link everything I have linked in text blaze. In Text Blaze, this is what is actually linked:

My original question was for this link:
and this is what happens:
the link will not go through. I had to create a bitly and that will work:

It looks like Google Voice turns URL's into a clickable link automatically.

What it looks like it doesn't do is support links on things that aren't URL's.

So you should replace all your links with URLs. So instead of " book here " you should do something like "book here (https://example.com/book)"

So basically, put the entire link into the snippet. Thank you!
