I was looking at adding back in the 
"send-a-url-in-the-email-notifications-hack" on our new 5.2.1 system, 
but am now being led to a different set of functions in 
modules/Calendar/CalendarCommon.php getEventNotification(), 
getActivityDetails() etc. I'm sure on 5.1.0 I just had to make a small 
mod to sendNotificationToOwner() in includes/utils/CommonUtils.php to 
get the same effect? It now looks like this function is hardly used 
anymore. I could only find one call to it via the CRMEntity class for 
the Potential module.

It now seems far more complicated and looks like it requires mods to the 
Activity class in modules/Calendar/Activity.php.

This really should be a standard feature. Virtually *everyone* we talk 
to about vtiger wants a URL in their email notifications.

Am I missing something? Is there a more straightforward way to address this?
