I am creating a newsletter in Pages, will export it to a pdf file and upload into CC for distribution. If I include web links within the pdf, will CC still track click-throughs?
Thanks for your question.
Adding a PDF to your email can only be done through linking to the document. Because of this, links within the document will not track.
If you were to convert the PDF to HTML and use a custom template as your email, links would track but this would require a PDF to HTML converter. You can find a converter by using PDF to HTML converter as a search query on Google.
If you had to convert the PDF to XHTML, you would need to add a tracking code to your links in order for them to be tracked in your email. To add tracking to your links in an XHTML email, follow these steps.
You can find a PDF to XHTML converter by using PDF to XHTML as a search query on Google.
