I wanted to chime in on this thread regarding the lack of Forward to a Friend in the third-generation editor. The simplest answer is that due to lack of usage in our previous editor (both our users inserting this link, and recipients using this link) we decided not to implement the feature. We also wanted to solve for cases where this feature was used as a workaround (such as getting around possible display issues), with other features or improvements to the editor. With our current editor being under active development, we want to focus on the latest and greatest features that will bring as much value as possible to our users. While I can understand that some users found this feature valuable, our plan is not to rebuild the second-generation editor, but rather to learn from its mistakes/successes to create a new, best-in-class editor.
To address some of the concerns around the lack of this feature:
I love all the feedback I’ve been reading on the third-generation editor and the team is looking forward to continuing to deliver awesome new features into 2018. Stay tuned for some great new features coming out first thing in January!
Forward to a Friend is critical for us and needed. We may be forced to find another service that supports this if not resolved soon. 😕
I'm sorry to hear that you're having difficulty with our Forward to a Friend feature. If you're sending via a test/preview email, that is jus for testing purposes and the actual forward email does not send to the recipient.
I'd love to take a look at this for you. Is there an email within your account that we can send to ourselves as a test and then try to forward?
Thanks in advance and for immediate assistance please reach out to our Support team via phone at 1-866-289-2101.
Please keep me posted on this. I'd like to add it to my clients' emails.
Thank you for your response! I will add this to your account as a feature request. We appreciate the feedback.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
We would find the Forward to a Friend feature very helpful in the 3rd generation editor. Please let us know when it is available. Thank you!
Thank you for reaching out to the community!
I will add this to your account as a feature request. We appreciate the feedback and I will be sure to track your request with the appropriate teams.
One more voice desperate to get the Forward to a friend option back. As so many have pointed out, not only do emails get distorted when simply forwarding through gmail, aol, etc, but the originial subscriber often gets unsubscribed without their knowledge. I have had several of our organization's leaders asking why we dropped it.
