Hello,

I know how to add a call to action button in a traditional email campaign, but how do I add it in an event invitation? I want to make buttons where you RSVP, but there is no design button when you are designing an invitation.  Thanks!

Hi @PattyK23 , 

 

Great question! At this time, we do not have the option for a button block in an event invitation. The editor in the Events platform is our older, 2nd generation editor that does not have that capability, but we are planning on rolling out a new platform very soon utilizing our newer email editor. I will have our engineering team reach back out to you with any updates we have on that. 

 

For now, I would recommend using our 3rd generation editor to send out an invitation, and inserting the link to the event into a button block manually. If you have a custom button image that you'd like to upload and link, you can do that as a workaround as well.
