I'm converting an old customer over to a new template and I've noticed that the option that said 'having trouble viewing this email? Click here to view in a browser' is missing. Did I miss something?

Hi @B2F 

 

The good news our engineers have added this feature back in our email campaigns! You can insert a "View as Webpage" link in your email.

Thank you for your reply to the Community! In our 3GE editor, we no longer have access to the HTML code or style sheet because the templates are hard coded. I will certainly submit your feedback to our developers on adding this feature back to our new templates.

 

The option to View As Webpage should show your whole email when clicked on, not just sections. Thank you!

Agree.  Removing the web view option for the entire email was another bad decision.  CC must have stopped doing user tests before removing features.

Hello @AITPChicago ,

 

You can still preview emails for both desktop and mobile formatting. You can still insert View As Webpage links. VaW links don't go live until the email campaign has been sent out, since they use the share link / permanent url.
