Insert a Data Input Form Link into a Mailing Template

Data input forms give your subscribers a way to tell you about themselves (demographics, profile information, etc.) and their communication preferences. However, without a way to share these forms with your subscribers, you’ll be in the dark. Let’s take a look at how you can insert a data input form link into a mailing template.

Navigate to Mailings > Templates > View.

To access an existing template, hover over the corresponding template’s Menu icon and click HTML. To create a new template, click Create.

In the HTML Editor, create or identify the text you would like to use for your data input form.

Highlight the text and click the Insert/Edit Hyperlink toolbar icon.

The Insert Hyperlink window opens.

Click the Hyperlink Type dropdown list and select Data Input Form/Modify Profile Link. This expands the page.

Click the Input Form dropdown list and select your desired data input form.

Enter an easily-recognizable name in the Name field. This is the link name that appears in your reports.

When ready, click Insert Hyperlink.

The text now appears as a link that connects to your data input form.

Set it in Your Templates!

Always set up your data input form links in your mailing templates. By doing so, you’ll save work by adding the form on a higher level. Furthermore, you’ll ensure that mailings that use that template contain a way for your subscribers to quickly and easily manage their preferences.
