ability to add a forward to friend in emails

I created an email using card/announcement and when I tried to add "forward to a friend", "join my mailing list" and permission reminder" I was not able. I would like to have the ability to use these functions in future emails that I create.

Hi everyone! I am following up to the forward to friend feature request. Thank you for your patience as we looked into this! The good news is we have received word from our engineers that feature is now available in our cross device templates under the social share block. If anyone has any additional questions on this, please don’t hesitate to respond to this post as we would be happy to assist you further.

Same response we have been getting. At this point, it is not a solution.




Thank you for reaching out to the Community. I do apologize this feature is not yet available. However, the more votes we get for a particular feature request does help our developers decide the priority of what to implement within our system. I have tracked this on your account to have you notified if this becomes available.

When an email is forwarded without benefit of a button, the receiver of the forwarded message is able to unsubscribe the original email address -- so my account is down a user, and the person engaged enough to be forwarding messages is then unsubscribed from my list. 


Hello @CCIMOH,


That is a great point and I will definitely pass that feedback on to our developers. Unfortunately, even when we had the forward to a friend button included, we didn't see many people utilizing it so that was still a problem. Hopefully our developers can enable something in future releases that will fit your needs!

Please keep me posted on this. I'd like to add it to my clients' emails.


Hello @TobiC0,


Thank you for your response! I will add this to your account as a feature request. We appreciate the feedback.


Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.

Our emails are constantly forwarded, that is how people spread the word about our events. When I use the forward button in my email client, the integrity and design of the email goes away. We really need the forward button re-added to the new editor.
The old format had the option to forward the campaing through emails. Can this be added back. When forwarding through Outlook, some of the information does not show up.
