Make it easy for contacts to forward your email to a friend

What happens if one of my contacts forwards my event invite with RSVP block using their email provider's "Forward" button, rather than using the "Share via Email" Social share button?  Will recipients still be able to RSVP for the event using their email addresses and personal information?  Any additional information or insight would be most appreciated.


Thank you,

Sara L.

Hello @EPCCOEDD ,

 

No, email forwarding through an email program will maintain the original contact's link tracking and other systems, which will skew click and open reports for them. Only forwarding via the built-in forwarding button will avoid this, as that version of forwarding essentially sends them the email's permanent URL for the webpage version, not the actual email with all the tracking and reporting elements.
