Hi everyone, The social share block has great features like sharing the sent email link on one's FB, X, Pinterest accounts. It also has the option to forward the email link to others as highlighted in this article: However currently the share this email feature as far as forwarding the email to others links to an article on constant contact as opposed to opening, in my case, a new email draft in gmail with the link to the email. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hello @ThomB ,


The forward functionality, similar to other social share block options, will not work in test and preview versions of the email. Have you actually sent the email out yet, or is it still only in Draft or Scheduled status?
