I will be happy to submit your feedback to our engineering team. In the meantime, we do have a workaround available that you are welcome to try. 

 

If you put the entire code in to the custom field instead of only the dynamic variable you can insert contact details from the custom field and that will allow the link to be dynamic for each contact. Take a look at the article Personal Contact Details for a Custom Code Email for steps on how to do this. For example, you would put something like this in your custom field: http://www.yourdomainhere.com/$Subscriber.Email$

 

Thanks for reaching out in the Community and providing your feedback.

 

Have a great day!

Re: Dynamic Link

Can you elaborate on this workaround?  Will this workaround allow you to have a link where the display text says "click here" or what have you, and the target for the link is a custom field with data like http://www.yourdomainhere.com/blahblahblah

Re: Dynamic Link

Hi @JuliM4

 

Thanks for reaching out for clarification on this as I'm sure other customers have this same question too!

 

To answer your question, no it will not allow you to add a "click here" type link, it will pull in the whole link from the custom field. But that would be a great option to have!

 

Thanks!

Re: Dynamic Link

Is it still not possible to do Dynamic Links?

I'm pretty sure this used to be possible with a much older version of CC.

For example, I want to send existing users to an auto-submitting form with a link like the below.

www.mywebsite.com/event/superevent?e={Email Address}

Re: Dynamic Link

Hi @user8043 

 

I apologize this feature was not carried over to our Third Generation Editor. Instead we suggest inserting the full URL for each contact into a spreadsheet and importing as a custom field. You won't be able to put clickable text for the URL, but the URL will at least get inserted in the email for contacts. Does this workaround work for you?

Re: Dynamic Link

Hi Frankie.

It really doesn't. At all.

Non-clickable is the first deal breaker and has to be repeated for every event is the second.

I really don't understand why CC is so feature poor.

This is a basic email feature available in every other tool.

CTA -Sending to reply to address

Hi Community - In  I was able to  -do a CTA Button (URL LINK) and define and pass the subscribers email address out of a Email Template and send them a calendar invite  -- 

 

THe command was *|email|*.. What is the command in Constant Contact to do the same?

 

Does Constant Contact have a Cheat Sheet ?

Re: CTA -Sending to reply to address

Hi @gregh8651

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community. I can definitely understand how helpful it would be to insert dynamic links like this! At this time being able to insert links like this is not currently available. In the meantime ,as a workaround we suggest putting the entire code into a custom field. Once you do this, in your email will have to then insert it as a standard contact detail. I do also want to mention this will not hyperlink the URL, recipients will have to copy/paste the URL into their browsers. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and have submitted this feature request in your account.

Automated log in link to secure website

I use the following code in  to allow for automated website logons for my customers. 

 

Is anyone able to assist with what the link would be on Constant Contact as I would like to migrate?  I realize that I will or would need to make a Custom Field which I would call Custom Field 1 and enter each customers authorization code (key). 

 

I am grateful for any assistance.
