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.


HI @NationalFederationofR,


Thank you for your feedback!  I will add this to your account as a feature request. We do appreciate your suggestions to make the product better.


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

Unfortunately, I spent a long time rebuilding a template in the new editor, assuming it would not only carry all the current features, but would be smoother and cleaner. The big mistake was not checking first, as not only am I not able to "forward to a friend" (which, by the way I have posted everywhere in the community, our best sellers of homes to their friends, how they could just click to share), but also missing anchor tags, table of contents, and no print preview for my company approval. Very disappointed and will be looking to make a change.


Hello @IRCCgraphics,


Thank you for reaching out to us today.  I do apologize for the absence of features that you were wanting in the latest version of the editor.  I will absolutely take your feedback and pass it along to the appropriate teams for review.

Please!!! This is causing a lot of issues for my team members who I send out campaigns for, including THEM getting unsubscribed when they forward from their email platforms. Thank you.

Brian, we would like our account to be added to the current request list as well. Really need this feature!

I would like this functionality as well. Please forward this message to your friends on the development team.








Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I have tracked your request on your account and have submitted it to our developers.


I also encourage you to check out our Feedback area of the Community where you can post any additional feedback you have and chime in with other customers sharing their ideas. Thank you!

We have a very senior board member who continually gets unsubscribed because she forwards our emails to her friends. Those people unknowingly click unsubscribe thinking that will take THEM off the list, but it takes HER off the list. I just called in to your customer service number to ask how to at least get the "Forward to a Friend" option in the footer, only to learn that it was removed for the version we are using and being revamped because of problems. On top of that, the young man that I spoke to was not at all friendly or professional in the way he answered my questions. His ultimate answer when I asked when the new feature would be rolled out was "No idea."

Another request for Forward to a Friend. I've been going crazy trying to find the setting for it because I remembered it being a feature. Frustrating!
