Insert a View in browser (mirror) link in your campaigns

In this article, we will explain how to insert a View in browser (mirror) link in your email campaigns.

What is a View in browser (mirror) link?

The View in browser (mirror) link is a link that recipients can click if they have trouble viewing your email in their inbox and want to open your email as a web page. Having a View in browser (mirror) link in your campaigns is not mandatory.

Add a View in browser (mirror) link in your campaigns

The process for adding a View in browser (mirror) link in your campaigns is different based on the editor you are using to build your email:

Choose a default header containing your View in browser (mirror) link to use in all your campaigns

You can set a default header containing your View in browser (mirror) link to be used in campaigns created using the HTML and Rich Text editors. To set a default header:

  1. Go to Campaigns > Settings > Default Settings.
  2. In the Default campaign settings section, modify the text of the [DEFAULT_HEADER] field.
    The clickable text must be added between curly brackets { }, e.g. {here}.

❗️ Important

When setting up a new email campaign, make sure to check the Enable Mirror Link box in the (Show) Advanced Options section for your header to appear in your email.

Override the default View in browser (mirror) link for a specific campaign

💡 Good to know
If you already added the View in browser (mirror) link in your email campaign design with the Drag & Drop Editor, the Edit default header/footer boxes will not be visible. 

From the email campaign creation, if you have set a default View in browser (mirror) link and want to modify it for a specific campaign:

  1. When creating an email campaign, access the Additional settings at the very bottom of your screen.
  2. Click Edit settings.
  3. In the Design section, check the Edit default header box and edit the text to override your default header. The clickable text must be added between curly brackets { }, e.g. {here}.
  4. Check the Enable mirror Link box.
  5. Set other additional settings if needed and click Save
