New-UDHTML Mailto link

I’m trying to create a mailto link in the footer of my dashboard. Is using New-UDHTML the correct way to go about this as I’m having all kinds of issues getting it to work?

Part of the problem lies with PS not liking the < symbol in the HTML. I’ve tried just about every combination of escape characters I can think of but at best the script will run however, in place of the link I get this text: UniversalDashboard.Models.RawHtml

If someone could point me in the right direction or even provide a working example, that would be awesome :smiley:


Was not able to use New-UDHTML but here a way to complete your issue. Need a license version to modify the footer.

  Set-UDLicense -License (Get-Content $PSScriptRoot\license.txt -Raw)

$myFooter = New-UDFooter -Links @(

    New-UDLink -Text "" -Url ""


$Dashboard = New-UDDashboard -title "Footer Test" -content {
    new-udcard -Size small -Content {
} -Footer $myFooter

Get-UDDashboard | Stop-UDDashboard
Start-UDDashboard -Dashboard $Dashboard -Port 10000 -AutoReload

Thanks @boats2000 - that’s great , just what I needed :+1:

Now to try and wrangle the text into a different location :wink:
