Hello, Is it possible to link a button to "jump to" a certain spot within an email? I want to have four button headers at the top of my email, where readers can click any one they are interested in and it jumps them down to that spot in the email. I hope this makes sense - thanks for your help!

Hello @CarolynZ2 ,

 

What you're describing are known as anchor links. Since the majority of email programs, especially those with mobile apps, do not allow this functionality for received emails, and will even treat them as more suspicious when filtering for spam, it is not a functionality available for emails sent through us.This is also part of the reason that embedding certain file types and programs into emails isn't allowed either.

 

If you're still wanting a "Table of Contents" or "Navigation Bar" for your email, you can set up a standard text block and type the name of the different sections of your email, or use a multi-column layout. Of course, please bear in mind that emails are more likely to be spam filtered or simply cut off midway in most email clients, if they go past a certain length (depends on the email client).
