Adding a "view in browser" link

If you have an image-heavy email, worry about display issues in specific email applications, or simply want to give your customers the option to view your email in the browser rather than just their inbox, you can add a link that generates a web version of the email personalized for each recipient.

To add the default Customer.io view in browser link (similar to the unsubscribe one we talked about here), you can use the following HTML code in your layout:

<a href="{% view_in_browser_url %}">View this email online</a> 

The resulting link will look something like:

http://e.customeriomail.com/deliveries/…

If you want to exclude the online view link from your open and click reports, you can add the untracked class to it:

<a href="{% view_in_browser_url %}" class="untracked">View this email online</a>

Like all other links, to have the View in browser link branded with your own domain, you’ll need to add a CNAME to your DNS records. To setup the link tracking domain, head out to the Email Deliverability page in your account.
