I'm sending out e-gift cards to contacts. Each gift card has a unique URL to be redeemed online for each contact - is there a way to insert the individual URLs as hyperlinks within one send rather than cloning 20 of the emails and manually linking each gift card for each contact? Contacts are also answering a survey (via Survey Monkey link) Would be good to be able to record the survey responses for each contact and check whether they click their gift card link.

There is a product for transactional emails, but a band-aid patch for this could be;

  1. Adding a field for that contact called "gift-code" etc
  2. Use that as a personalised token in each email

Each email would then render that gift code in the personalised portion of the copy.

 

Hope that helps!

Hey ksk,

 

You would want to use the personalised token in the space of the link in the hyperlink.

 

e.g. <a href="{{contact.gift-card-code}}">click here for gift card</a>

 

Keep in mind, when you click on this link, it automatically adds a "/" to the link.

 

You will have to play around with the gift code to ensure it works with the hyperlink, but that's generally how it should work.

 

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks Cameron, that does help. 

 

Would you be able to help with the next step? I would like to be able to mask the e-card URL as hyperlinked text. For instance: 'Redeem you voucher' being clickable to their gift card.
