Is it possible to have text blocks in email tasks based on response answers?

Say I have a link I want to display only if someone chooses a specific answer in question 1. Is that doable?

    There are two ways to approach this:

    1. You can have separate emails triggers for different conditions.
    2. You can set and embedded field to contain different text based upon the answer to a question in the survey flow, then pipe the embedded field into the email.

    When trying to set an embedded field all I see is the ability to put the value of the selected responses into the embedded data. Say someone picks Housing in the example question below. I would need to include the housing website url.

    Example Question:

    1.     I would like to be connected to the resources in the following areas:

    Coursework (How to study, time management, writing papers, tutoring services)  

    Culture Centers (drop down appears if clicked on)


    Diversity and Inclusion resources

    Financial management techniques

    Getting involved on campus

    Getting involved in the Bloomington Community


    International Student Services and Programming

    Mental Health and Well-being

    Religious Life

    In your survey flow you would have a branch and embedded data block that looks something like:

    <Branch: If Question Q1  Housing Is Selected
        Embedded Data: housing_url = <a href=''>Housing</a>

    Then you can pipe ${e://Field/housing_url} into your email trigger. It will be blank if housing wasn't selected or a link to the url if it was selected.
