Is there any way to get your company name in the URL's of the "view online" and webform pages?  

So if you work for the ABC Company the urls could be branded:

http://abc.e2ma....    Even if it something you have to pay extra for?

Hi Erik! There isn’t a way to do this right now, so I’m checking in with our Product Team to see what this would entail as an offering from us. I’ll keep you posted with what I learn. ;)

Okay thank you.  

If it can't be a subdomain.  How about adding it somewhere after the domain using the steps here:  https://support.myemma.com/Account_resources/Account_how-to/adding-personalization

so your view online url could be like   

http://t.e2ma.net/abc-company/webview/..   We use the view online links of newsletters as standalone webpages sometimes.  I think it would be a better user experience if the url contained the company name somewhere so it at least appears that the page is associated with you.

Those personalization details work a little differently: They’re tags that are coded to pull in information unique to your audience. I totally understand what you’re after — inserting a bit of code into the URL that pulls in your company name — but I just want to note that personalization itself is a separate feature.

Have you heard from users that they’re hesitant to click your links, or are you thinking ahead?

Katie - this issue has come up for us. We are sending emails (plain text) to Governement employees, and they have sent us concern in clicking on these "t.e2ma.net..." links, worrying about 'phishing' / is there any way to turn this function off, and keep the native url?

Hi there!  You can remove the redirect link in Emma by editing the code for a particular link.  Now, right now you can only edit the code in a text block or if you are using Code Your Own HTML. 

If you are, you simply add in "no_track="1" "  into the A tag holding that URL.  So it would look something like this:

<a href="http://www.myemma.com"; no_track="1">

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Erik,

That's an interesting idea. Thanks for the feedback. This isn't something we plan to offer. The work that we have tentatively slated regarding forms is allowing more flexibility with what you can do with the *output* of the form more so than additional features around our standalone, hosted forms. The idea of masking URLs is on the table if we move beyond a simple web view of your email and further into landing page publishing, but without that move, this isn't something we plan to accommodate in the roadmap.

Thanks again for the feedback. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

Best,
David
