Re: Anchor links

I cannot find where the anchor link image is. I know it should be under insert but it’s not popping up. So I’m wondering if certain versions do not have this capability

Re: Anchor links

Hi @BettyM48 and @PhotzaP,

 

Thanks for asking about Anchor Links! In our newest editor, we have replaced this functionality with a Read More action block. It helps to keep your email campaign short while driving your contacts to your web presence with a clear call-to-action. To insert a "Read more" link in your email campaign, click More:

Then select the Read More option:

Clicking the "Read more" link in your email campaign will take your readers directly to the webpage in order to view the full content.

Re: Anchor links

That's a nice feature, but it doesn't accomplish jumping to a spot within the email itself. Is there not a way to do that now?

Re: Anchor links

Hello @MaddieS58,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. At this time we do not have any plans to include anchors in our new Third-Generation editor. There is very limited support for anchors in emails, almost every mobile email client doesn't have support for it and almost half of the most commonly used email clients are mobile. Although this is not a plan for now, I would be more than happy to submit your feedback to our Developers for review. Your feedback is valuable to us, we are always looking for ways to improve your experience with our system. Feel free to let us know of any features that you feel could be beneficial for our system and we will submit them for you. I also want to apologize once more for any inconvenience this has caused. Thank you.

Re: Anchor links

Not having this feature is very inconvenient and short-sighted.  There IS still a need for it, and you should not assume that all of your clients want to anchor to web content.  Fail.

Re: Anchor links

Hello @AmberL19680,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I can definitely understand how convenient it would be to still have the Anchor feature included. I do apologize for the inconvenience of no longer having this feature added to our system. I'd be more than happy to track your feedback for informational purposes. The Read More action block is what we currently have for our Third-Generation editor. I understand that the functionality for this feature is slightly different from what an Anchor link would accomplish. We are always working on ways to improve the experience with the system which is why we always keep track of all feedback. Feedback is extremely appreciated, so feel free to pass them along at any time. I want to apologize again for any inconvenience that this might have caused. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist with today. Have a wonderful day.

Re: Anchor links

This is extremely disappointing.  What email creator doesn't have anchor links?  The Read More option is useless and has nothing to do with anchor links.

 

This is a serious flaw and really makes me consider switching back to my previous provider.
