Linking to the web version of an email blast

Wild Apricot does not provide an option to archive a newsletter or other email blast by creating an online version of the message. However, you can create one yourself by following these steps:

  1. Create your email blast and send it only to yourself.
  2. Save the email as an email template by opening the message within the email log and clicking the Save as template button.

  3. Under the Website menu, select the Files option.
  4. From the File management screen, expand the EmailTemplates folder and select the subfolder with the name of the email template you just created.
  5. Within the email template folder, right click over the index.html file and select the Properties option.

  7. Return to the email log and open the email blast you sent to yourself.
  8. Click the Save as new email button.
  9. Within your email message, add a link to the index.html file, which will function as the online version of your message. You could, for example, have the link read "Having trouble viewing this message?".
  10. Select the recipients for your message, then review and send it.

You can also create an email blast archive page, then create a new email template for each blast, and link to each of them from the archive page.
