Re: "Forward to a Friend" Button

Hello @AnitaS921,

 

Yes, the legacy templates are our older version of the editor.  The new third generation editor has already been released, and any of the 'standard' templates in your account will be using that newer editor.  We do not currently have an ETA on when the forward to a friend button will be added to this editor, but we'll be continuing to pass those requests on to the engineering team so that they know it's something people are wanting and asking about.

Hello @MichelleM112,

 

That is a great point and I will definitely pass that feedback on to our developers. Unfortunately, even when we had the forward to a friend button included, we didn't see many people utilizing it so that was still a problem. Hopefully our developers can enable something in future releases that will fit your needs!

Re: Re: "Forward to a Friend" Button

Hi, is there an update on the status of this feature being added to the Third Generation Editor? We recently had a custom template built by Constant Contact. When I tested out how it looks when it is forwarded from Outlook to Gmail, the formatting was completely off. It would be great to have the forwarding feature for that reason and the reasons other people have shared. Thank you!

Hello @TAFoodBank,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us in regards to the ''Forward to a Friend'' feature. At this time we do not have any available updates for the addition of this feature in the new Third-Generation editor. Although they are still reviewing this option, I'd be more than happy to submit your feedback to the correct team. In addition to that, there is some information that we would love to add to the feedback you have provided. In regards to the display issue you were mentioning, if you could send us some information on:

 

- What are the display issues (stretching, colors, etc)?
- What email client was the email forwarded from?
- What email client was the forwarded email received at?

- Would you be able to provide us with a screenshot of the issue being experienced?

 

You can email this information to social_support(at)constantcontact(dot)com along with a reference to this post. If you happen to have this information, we will attach this information along with your feedback. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist with today.

Re: Re: "Forward to a Friend" Button

I also would like to have a "forward to a friend" feature. Some of my subscribers have requested this. They like to share my content but their email clients change the appearance of my email and they are unhappy with the results.

Forward email button

Does anyone know if the ability to let your subscribers forward the email to their friends has been discontinued? I can't find it anywhere in the 3rd generation editor.

@JulieL34

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community. That is a great question! Unfortunately the forward to a friend feature is currently unavailable in the third generation editor. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

 

We really appreciate your specific feedback on how the third generation editor can be improved. It's great insight for our developers to review as they map out future updates for the product. I have tracked it in your account for them to see.

 

I also encourage you to check out our Feedback area of the Community where you can post any additional feedback you have and chime in with other customers sharing their ideas.

 

In the meantime, if you have any further questions please feel free to reach out to us here. We are always happy to assist you in any way we can!
