Im trying to pull off something such as city name and insert it into the e-mail but I can't find any information on how to do that. I have uploaded the contacts but still can't get it to work. Basicall in the intro there is a preset version with the Dear (first name) line. I want to be able to do something like this in a different section. Any ideas?
When you are editing your email put the insertion point where you want to place the field. Then use the drop down "Insert Contact Details" to select the field you want.

Help... I am looking for a working forward to a friend code to add to my custom HTML page using the Advanced editor. I have tried, as suggested in the Advanced Editor's User's Guide - <Forward>Note - whatever I put here does not matter, nothing worked</Forward>. Originally I tried including in within a <td></td> tags - no go. My last attempt was to insert it into the body tag - still no workie...
Thanks - any help would be gratefully appreciated.
Oh, and the email campaign was sent through my test account...so actually was sent.
I just double checked with my specialists and unfortunately there is no way to add an additional forward to a friend link in a custom HTML email. This can be done in our WYSIWYG templates or in our custom XHTML emails. I apologize for the inconvenience and I will submit your feedback to our developers.
Here is the link on how to add the forward to a friend link to a custom XHTML email if you decide to use that instead.
I often get emails that were sent by other agencies on Constant Contact and i would like to forwarf them to our lists and cant find a way to do so. Is there a way. I hate to have to spend the time recreating the email to send to my contacts.
Thank you for your post. Great question!
At this time, we do not have a way for you to forward another company's Constant Contact email to your Constant Contact email list without recreating the email yourself.
It is possible to manually transfer an email from one account to another, but it would require the login credentials of both companies' accounts. Unless that company wishes to provide you with their login information, then this most likely would not be possible. Visit http://tinyurl.com/mv7czmk to learn more.
I do apologize that, unless they agree to let you login to their account to use the feature in the link above, you will need to recreate the email.

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?
