Where is the option to 'view in browser' in an email now?

I'm converting an old customer over to a new template and I've noticed that the option that said 'having trouble viewing this email? Click here to view in a browser' is missing. Did I miss something?

Hi @B2F 

 

The good news our engineers have added this feature back in our email campaigns! You can insert a "View as Webpage" link in your email.

Hello @KathyG622,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us about this!

 

The option to view in web browser option has been discontinued in the Third Generation Editor. This is why you are not seeing the option in the header of your campaigns.

 

As an alternative you can make a copy of the campaign that you are sending and send this to a list with just your contact. Once this has been sent a share URL will be created. Copy and paste the share URL into the top of your email with the "View in browser" verbiage. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused!

 

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Thanks for your response Curtis_P. That is a lot of work for something that was automatic before. Not the answer I was hoping for but thanks for the workaround idea I appreciate it. Kathy

Not happy about these omissions at all. Why remove functions that promote more views for your clients?

Hi @GeraldW49

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community about functions you'd like to see in your account. I apologize for any inconvenience caused by not having this feature. Any feedback about changes you would like to see can be submitted and tracked by our developers here in the CommunityYou can also submit feedback through the Have Feedback button at the bottom of every page in your account. We are always looking for ways to better our user's experience.

 

In the meantime we do suggest the work around mentioned of sending your email to a list of just you, getting the Short URL for that email, copying the sent email, and adding the Short URL into the email through a text box at the top.

No need to remove a helpful function that actually worked. Please update to bring that feature back.
