Hello @Live4Liv ,

 

PDFs can't be embedded into emails sent through us, so if your Canva email template has links, you'd be setting it up like any other email created from a PDF. When you bring it over from Canva, you can insert the first page to act as a thumbnail for your overall design in your email, then link to the fuller document in your Library.

I created a newsletter in Canva and added two different links. When I upload to Constant Contact, however, the links do not work, and you can only add one link via Constant Contact? Is this correct?

Hi @BrittnyA. This depends on if you uploaded one image or multiple. Only be one link added to a image. If you need two, you can break up the image into two images or add two links manually to the email.

Thanks for responding!! So basically, it's a newsletter with several images and blurbs.  I have two separate areas where I have links.  If I go through CC it will only allow me to manually add one link to the newsletter - and it links the entire document...not just the "click here" part.

PDFs and images can only have only link attached to them. You will need to break up the PDF/image into two separate pieces to create a double link effect.

Can you guide me on how to do that by chance?

Hi @BrittnyA. I recommend dividing the PDF/image into two separate images outside of your account before uploading them. There may be a way in Canva to accomplish this but I'm not completely familiar with how to do so. There are tutorials online if you search for "split images in Canva". If you need further assistance while working in Canva, please contact their support team.

I am not sure if you can pass along feedback...but it is extremely frustrating to spend so much time designing something really cool in Canva, only to learn that when you upload to CC nothing works.  I honestly don't see the point in having the two platforms work together...because essentially, they don't. I need to have multiple links in our newsletters.
