Passing URL Parameters

Hi there - 

 

I want to send an email to my list and include a call-to-action link in the email.  When the user clicks that link, they will land on a landing page and I want to know who they are so we can auto-log them back in to our site.  Is it possible to include either the email itself or some unique parameter in the URL?  If so, how would I do that on the constant contact side?

 

Thanks!

Hello @brianc616,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! When you put the link into your email, many customers do this using our button feature. It is a visually appealing way of putting a call to action link inside an email that can go to your landing page. Then, you can see exactly who clicked on that link by selecting the email's title and looking at the reporting once it sends. Click here to see where that is located. However adding a dynamic link through a button is not currently available. At this time we would suggest importing the full dynamic URL as a custom field under the matching contacts. You can then insert this custom field into your email. Your contact won't be able to put clickable text for the URL, but the URL will at least get inserted in the email. Thanks!

Re: Passing URL Parameters

I need to perform the same. 

 

How to pass a parameter in the URL?

 

I read some users were using https://www.example.com/landingpage/?$Subscriber.Email 

but it's not working anymore. So how to we do that?

Hi @MohamedY751 

 

I apologize you have been unable to insert these dynamic links as you should. At this time our system does not allow the option to include these types of clickable links in an email campaign. Instead the workaround we recommend is to add these the full dynamic URLs into your email as a custom field. We have also updated our original response in this thread to display this correct answer.
