Insert a Read Online Link
To add a link to an email that allows contacts to view an online (web) version of your email.
The Read Online Link is a Mapp Engage Variable that you can drag and drop into your email. Mapp Engage creates a version of your email and makes this version available on a web page. When your contacts click this link, they can read the email in their web browsers.
Include this link in every email. This link ensures that contacts who have problems with the display of your email in their inboxes can still read your message.
There are two versions of this variable: one for an HTML email and one for a text email.
To create the link to the landing page, drag and drop the variable into your email message. The variable has the form of a placeholder that appears within tags, like this: <% ... % > During sendout, the placeholder is replaced with the link to the correct landing page.
To read the message online, contacts need group permission 606 Messaging: View Messages Online. Enable this permission for the group role Normal Recipients.
