Webpage Version

Webpage Version

Hello, After sending out my email to Outlook users, we noticed that when they go to view the email in the browser, the newsletter is distorted (both pictures and text). I know that there used to be an option to include a Constant Contact html in the subject line so that when they get redirected the host page is through you and therefore not distorted. It would be extremely helpful to get this feature added back on. Thank you.

I created my email with font pitch 13 but when it came to my Outlook in box, the font was so tiny it was very hard to read. Is there anyway to get the old header that says: Having trouble viewing this email? Click here ... so it goes to a web browser which clears up problems with email applications that alter the original in some funky ways. I am using the mobile app to develop my communication.

There's no way to add a "View as a webpage" link to the email. Please vote for this idea if you agree!

I would like to have this feature added as well. This should be available to everyone. Plus I use this link to share out to others for review. It allows me to send the link to more than the 5 people you allow for the Preview. Also, I can make updates and the people with the link can see the most updated version. - this is a work around until you have an update to the preview/ review email process.

I generally post my newsletters on a website after sending them out. I decided to use this new smart-phone format and have gotten a positive response...but the webviewer and archive options no longer exist...making it more difficult to post on my website.

This is commonplace in most commercial emails and needs to be included at the top of every email for a better user experience. Example: "To see the web version, Click Here" "Click Here To View Online" "Having trouble viewing this email? Click here"

Could you please add an option to create a webpage-version link in mobile friendly-emails? Ideally it shouldn't be necessary, but on my own, new, android phone using the gmail app my own emails don't always show correctly. I used to include the webpage links on my old template but I can't figure out how to do so using the new mobile friendly ones. Thanks, Joy

With previous emails/templates we were able to include a link at the top of the email allowing people to view the email in their browser in case their email program distorts the formatting. With this template/editor that option is not available. It would be very helpful for that to be an option, especially since this email is supposed to be mobile friendly, and having that option is especially important on mobile. We are now thinking about having to entirely re-create this email using a different template/editor in order to get that function back.

Hello - loving my new mobile template for my Wooden Angel emails but the option to "click here" if having trouble viewing is gone. I have a few people who cannot view the emails and use that feature regularly. I looked everywhere for it, am I missing it? Can you bring it back fo rmobile?

Thanks for the feedback @MauraD1, your new Wooden Angel email looks fantastic! We don't currently have the ability to "view in webpage". Vote for this topic if you agree!

Hello. It appears that there is no longer an option to display an email as a web page. Why the change?

I don't see the line if you are having trouble viewing this email, click here to view on website.

Did this change with the updating of your program

I just recently started dabbling in constant contact so someone please correct me if I'm wrong: In the old version the header had an option to insert a short URL link to an email for those recipients who had trouble viewing it. This was very helpful especially for big promotions that need to be seen right away! Recently, I chose to upgrade to the newer version because I needed the PDF importer for certain promotions - Ultimately, in my opinion, the PDF importer makes it much easier for customers to be able to download the promotion and print it out. Now, for those emails I send with no PDF attachment, I no longer have the header option to click over to a short URL. Having the header option and PDF Importer are both equally important. I don't think you should have to chose between one or the other... They said the newer version was an "upgrade" so why have they taken these header features away?

Thanks for posting this feedback! You are right that both editors currently don't have the same options but we're working on making the same experience for everyone in the future. Thanks again for your ideas!

Please add the "webpage view/ having trouble viewing this email" option back. I talked with your support and they said it's no longer available...this is a very useful tool that should be added back to Constant Contact. Thanks!

As a marketing company managing accounts for multiple clients, we like the new editor but some very useful tools have been removed and we'd like to see them back. - Please add the "Having trouble viewing this email? Click here" function back. The URL was very convenient to send to multiple clients for their approval of a campaign. Using send a test email is not reliable because people who receive the test email will respond to the "from" email address, not to the person who created the campaign. - Please add a little more choices in the color options. You can only use a few choices that change the whole template vs. a box background like before, for example.
