Hi, 

 

I'm looking for a way to use a link with an anchor with the URL builder. Does this character need to be escaped? How would I do that?

No this fine because if this (#) appears before UTM parameters in the URL, then the UTM parameters aren't tracked.

If you're using a URL builder tool ( https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867 ) you don't need to do anything special - just paste your full URL with anchor.
