Filemaker triggering KM macro with parameter containing /'s

Hi, I've been here before but couldn't find the old thread.
Here is the string I'm wanting to pass to KM
I'm using the URL trigger of:
FMP talks just fine to KM, I can get a simple text string into the 'whatever' parameter and it shows fine.
But then I put the string above into the place of the parameter, it doesn't come across.
I'm pretty sure something to do with the forward slashes, / -
I can get it to work by copying the string I want to the clipboard and then pick it up in KM but that's sort of 'country programming' =),
I appreciate any help.

Hey @troy,

My best guess is that you need to encode the “Whatever” part of the string with a Filter action.

You might also have to adjust the processing of tokens in the open URL action's gear menu.

Would it maybe work to surround Whatever in "double straight quotes"?

That will work as long as there's no double-quite in Whatever.

@ccstone's encoding idea is the best way to go
