I would like to add a file path link (hyperlink) in a campaign, but want to be able to edit the name so the full path name is not shown. Is this possible?

Hello @Nancyd749 ,

 

Whatever link you put into the email is going to get overwritten by the tracking rewrite upon sending, so it won't initially show when a recipient mouses over the link in their email program/app. That said, whatever the link was upon setting it up in the email, will still be what shows in the address bar after the track rewrite properly redirects to it.

 

If you're planning to do a file path to something natively on your desktop, then our system wouldn't be able to support that kind of setup.
