I would like to make an email active - meaning the user can click on it and open it up in Outlook.  Is my only option to create a PowerApp of is there any easier way to set this up?

@ChristyRoach add a text web part to your page and just type in the link. Or add text and then select the link icon to enter the url. This will open a new email in the browser edition of Office 365 Outlook, not the desktop version.

@ChristyRoachI've used both the Button and the Call to Action web parts to add an email link. 

In the link, put "mailto:emailaddress"

 

I was trying to do the same thing and the field will not allow me to add an email address, I have https:// and it won't allow me type mailto:emailaddress over it.

Do you have any suggestions? @ChristyRoach 

@RobElliott 

thanks @ChristyRoach @RobElliott maybe a possible sharepoint upgrade? to allow links to email addresses

@martricedenson in case it helps, the attached video shows 3 ways of adding a link to an email address on a SharePoint page.
