Table of Contents block

How do I add a table of contents to my email? I don't see that as a "block" to select. CC created a custom template for my church it doesn't include that.

 

I also want to embed a Google Calendar feed but I guess that is not a possibility either. Thanks.

Hello @janicezazinski ,

 

Your old template's table of content block used something called anchor links, which we don't have in the current editor. Anchor links, as an industry-wide practice, are defunct since the vast majority of email clients (Gmail, Outlook, etc.) will typically spam filter emails containing these. This is also part of the reason that embedding certain file types and programs into emails isn't allowed either.

 

For more info on why anchor links are bad practice

 

If you're still wanting a "Table of Contents" for your email, you can set up a standard text block and type the name of the different sections of your email. Of course, please bear in mind that emails are more likely to be spam filtered or simply cut off midway in most email clients, if they go past a certain length (depends on the email client).
