We are glad you asked about adding the Forward to a Friend Feature in the latest editor. Our Development Team is actively tracking feedback and information on this to determine the best way to approach that feature. Once an update has been made we would be happy to let you know. Thanks!
In our case, we are a community church that is part of a larger church organization. Our subscribers want information from the larger church and it is just a time drain to have to recreate the information! This certainly seems like functionality that would benefit those of us in this particular situation.
Thank you for your feedback. I can see how a feature that lets you forward an email to your own contacts will help you save some times when your are creating your account. We make updates often, and are always interested in hearing how each of our customers use the product in their own enviroment. I am going to add this to our feedback system where we share thoughts from our cusotmers.
I recommend that you contact the larger church. If they send out to several smaller churches information about the church and programs they may want to consider our Partner Program. They can have one account for them and several child accounts under them. They can create templates and copy them to the child accounts. More information about Partner Program.
Thank you for the information on the Partner Program but, if there is any additional associated cost with that (which is not clear via the link you sent), I'm pretty sure the parent church would not be interested.
There is no cost to join our Partner Program. After they fill out the form one of our Account Managers will reach out to them and discuss their situation and see if the Partner Program would fit in what they want to accomplish. If they would like to learn more they can check out the Partner Program Association to learn more.
Do NOT instruct your customers to use the Forward button in their email client, unless you want to have to sort out mysterious Unsubscribes later. If Customer A uses their email client's Forward function to send your email to Stranger B, then Stanger B opens the email and clicks the Unsubscribe link, it unsubscribes Customer A.
If you are okay with the instances where that will happen, go ahead and encourage forwards. Some users don't care, because the instances are few and far between. Other users who don't know about this issue spend time failing to figure out how Custumer A was unsubscribed, and spend more time failing over and over to simply add Customer A back to their contacts.
