Is there a reccommended way to implement anchor links within a HubSpot marketing email? I understand that various email clients are not 'compatible' / support anchor links, but some of our companies content heavy emails could really benefit from this capability. So far, I have tested adjusting the HTML of several text modules with the basic function... "<a href="#article1"> <a name="article1">, but the functionality was unsuccessful with my emails to Outlook and Gmail.

Hi @SIntgroen,

 

Finding conflicting information on this. According to other users, Gmail and Outlook don't seem to support anchor links, see here and here. This article however claims that it should work, "How to add anchor links in emails".

 

Have you tried whether the web version of your email works fine with the anchor links? If yes, then that'd confirm that it's set up correctly but it's not supported.

Hi @SIntgroen ,


If I am not wrong then you are looking to track links that are being sent in email?


I found this KB that you can refer to-
https://knowledge.hubspot.com/website-pages/insert-and-manage-anchor-links#:~:text=Create%20an%20an....

 

Hope this helps!
