I created an email using card/announcement and when I tried to add "forward to a friend", "join my mailing list" and permission reminder" I was not able. I would like to have the ability to use these functions in future emails that I create.
I need to use this function to create sharable campaigns that my business partners can use to send to their own contacts. A more obvious button would be appreciated as well. I need to be able to explain to them that they have to use that button, not the forward in their email client. Maybe it could be an editing element that we could slide anywhere in the email, and have the ability to change the text on the button.
@ChristaH117 Thank you for the feedback. We know this is a important feature for some users. The product team is looking at the best way to implement this into the current editor.
Why does it take so long to bring back "forward to a friend?" It appears from this thread that many of us are missing that feature. As others have pointed out, it's easy to do with MailChimp, and if your list is on the smaller side, MailChimp is FREE.
It's frustrating that I can only have subscribers share to social media and not directly via email. Also, if I use that function and include icons/links to my company's social media, it looks junky, so I need to pick one or the other. I tried the social media share buttons at the top and that's even worse.
Please bring back forward to a friend!
You have to use the old editor to make forward to a friend work. Hopefully, CC will add this feature to the new editor as well. But the old editor is not really all that hard to manipulate, especially if you have a template.... Also, wish it would have an option for "Forward to a colleague" or something businessy, since many of use CC for biz-biz....
We had the same issue with our newsletter template. Right now you have to use the LEGACY templates to have the forward to a friend feature. They said they are working on it, but honestly, it's been a couple of years and they still keep pushing the "new" template. But if you have the template as you like it, you may be able to recreate in Legacy. It's not really that hard once you understand the concept of blocks and what each one is for. Good luck, and I actually suggested calling it Forward to a colleague or friend or give you a choice....so it makes sense to whoever is receiving....
We would like the Forward to a Friend button to be added back to the template editor. It was useful in our newsletters created with legacy templates, and there isn't a substitute for the feature in the new version.
I just learnt that a forwarded e-mail can be unsubscribed and in essence unsubscribe the person originally on the e-mail list. Then there is process which is not easy to get re-subscribed. My question is why was I not told about this issue , as I am sure I have lost numerous customers due to this issue? Why was this problem not explained to me earlier, as I am sure in was a known problem????
