We ask for additional comments and votes to be left on the open idea for removing the social share bar from the webpage version of a campaign. Our Product team regularly reviews our Feedback boards more than our Get Help area. Though we do not have a time estimate if a feature like this will be available in the product, any updates will be posted there, not on this post. Voting and commenting on the linked post above helps to influence future product decisions and allows you to be notified of replies from our teams

Hello @BurntO ,

 

At the moment there isn't a way to edit the share bar at the top of the View As Webpage / Link version of the email. With that said I went ahead and got your information submitted to our engineers so if and when there's a future update, they'll make sure to notify you.

Thank you for your response.

Yes, it does seem a bit presumptuous to be force the link to an opt in page whenever I supply the code for someone other than contacts to see the newsletter.

I can see that on the face of it you would think it's a good idea - but really you should be checking with the account holder first who knows their customers, why a link code has been supplied and whether or not a link to that particular sign up page is appropriate.

It is good that your designers show initiative but this is definitely something that should be optional for the account holder to keep or remove.
We weren't even advised it was going to be there - it just appeared !!!!!

Many thanks

I would also like to remove this link because it causes discrepancies between our donor management system and CC lists. (After multiple issues, we had to disable two-way syncing.)

I would also like to know when /if there is an update that would allow this featured to be edited or disabled.

Agreed - we need the join my mailing list button removed asap -  as we deal with several firms!

I concur with the other requests to provide an option in displaying the "Join our mailing list" link. Thank you.

Agreed. This has resulted in many contacts trying to sign up for news intended for a smaller, more restricted group.

I want this to go away as well. We have paid subscribers to our emails. I don't want them to think that just anyone can opt-in for free. It looks bad.

I would also like to see the ability to share emails on social at the top banner go away as well. Thanks!
