Linking to an email address

In Modern Editor you can add a mailto: link to an email address in any text or image block. These are added just like any other link in your design inside an href field. When your recipient clicks the link, it will open the default email client on the device with the email address populated in the To: field. You can even include a subject line and body content in the mailto link. One drawback, mailto links cannot be tracked like other links.

 

1. Click on a text or image block field in your design.

 

2. Find the href field on the editing panel (left side).

  • In image blocks, the href field will appear in the edit content panel.
  • In text blocks, the href field will appear when you highlight a word and click the link icon.

 

3. Above the href field, click on the envelope icon.

 

4. A window will appear to help add a mailto link. Fill in all the fields as needed.

  • Enter an email address in the Email Address field.
  • Optional. To automatically add a subject line when clicked, enter text into the Email Subject field.
  • Optional. To automatically add body content when clicked, enter text into the Email Body field.

 

 

 

5. Click I’m Done.
