Add a link

With Flexmail you can easily add links to your messages through text, images and buttons. It is a great way to add multiple functionalities to your messages. You can link not only to external sources but also to a landing page, to an email address, a form, a survey or a file for download. 

This article will walk you through a helpful example of adding links to your text, images and buttons in all of those three tools - the Smart Builder, the Wizard Template and the HTML Editor.


Drag & Drop Builder

You can drag and drop a text, an image or a button element onto an empty structure or a predefined structure that includes any of those elements onto the canvas. 

Text element
  1. In the Element tab you can find the Text element. Drag and drop it onto the canvas over an empty structure.

  2. Select the part of your message you want to make into an anchor text for your link. Then, click on the hyperlink button from the text editor menu.

  3. On the next screen, you can either type in a URL to an external source or you can link to an email address, file, landing page, form or survey.

Image element
  1. In the Element tab you can find the Image element. Drag and drop it onto the canvas over an empty structure.

  2. Next, click on the Image element on the canvas to open the Image properties

  3. Click on Link Type to select the kind of link you want to add to your image - a URL to an external source, a email address, a form, survey, landing page or file.

Button element
  1. In the Element tab you can find the Button element. Drag and drop it onto the canvas over an empty structure.

  2. Next, click on the Button element on the canvas to open the Button properties.
  3. Click on Link Type to select the kind of link you want to add to your image - a URL to an external source, a email address, a form, survey, landing page or file.


Wizard Template

In the Wizard template, you can add a link through several personalisation elements. 

Logo/Banner
  1. Click on the Logo or Banner element to expand the options.  
  2. Click on the Browse button to upload your logo or banner.
  3. Enter a URL in the Link field.

Articles
  1. Click on the Articles element to expand the articles options.

  2. Click on Add an article to start.
  3. Now you will see a WYSIWYG editor. You can add a link to the text or images in the editor and to the call to action button at the bottom of the Article properties.

    To add a link to the text or an image, highlight the part of your text or the image you want to make into a link. Then click on the hyperlink button at the top. That will open the Insert/Edit Link pop-up. Here you can choose a URL, a file, a landing page, form or survey to link to.

  4. To edit the call to action button of your article, scroll down to the bottom of your Article properties and give your call to action a name - Link name. Then click on the Link field, on L for landing page, F for form, S for survey or D for document.

HTML Editor

In the HTML Editor, you can add a link through a piece of text, an image or a button. Adding a link works similarly for these three elements.

Support tip
The WYSIWYG HTML Editor does not have a specific option to add a button. In the article about adding a call to action you can discover a helpful example of how to add a button via HTML. However, please note even though you will find an example in that article, we do not provide support for custom HTML code.
  1. Highlight the item you want to use for your anchor. Then click on the hyperlink button in your WYSIWYG editor.

  2. That will open the Insert/Edit Link pop-up. Here you can choose a URL, a file, a landing page, form or survey to link to.

  3. Check out the Popup, Events and Advanced tab to adjust the appearance of your link. E.g. you can choose for the link to open in a popup or to select an action that happens upon hovering over the link.

  4. Click on Insert when you are finished in order to apply the changes.
