How can I get an email's subject line as a tag within the body?
Welcome to the forums, amclin! There isn't a tag for automatically adding your subject line to the body copy, I'm sorry to say. Our full list of content tags is available here.
The only workaround would be to add your subject line to a custom field for all your subscribers, but as you can imagine, that would be quite fiddly to deal with for each campaign!
Is this something that can be added? It looks like someone on your end submitted this as a request a few months ago: http://www.campaignmonitor.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=4251
Just adding this simple feature would go a long way to improving Share on Social Network links. It would be nice if I as the designer could setup a link like this http://facebook.com/sharer.php?t=[subject]&u=[webversion]
This is one of the few features that's preventing me from moving my clients from another service. The ability to set up Share Online buttons in templates without needing to modify every mailing is critical, and is something that apparently people have been asking for from CM for over a year: http://www.campaignmonitor.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=2279
Thank you for providing some context here, I see where you're coming from with social sharing links. I've added your vote to the earlier feature request you mentioned and we'll certainly keep this on the radar.
We're currently working on social sharing integration in our app, however I don't have a timeline or details as yet. Hopefully this will overcome awkward issues such as the manual insertion of meta and tags into campaigns, so I'll keep you posted as more information comes to light.
Thanks amclin, we appreciate you hanging in there while we steadily work on making these additions to the app. If there's anything else you would like to see in the upcoming social sharing feature, please let us know.
Hi again amclin, we're very pleased to announce that we've just added social sharing to all Campaign Monitor accounts. Hopefully this will solve the social sharing issue with tags that we were having earlier ;)
Using our simple template tags, it's now super easy to add 'Like on Facebook' and 'Share on Twitter' links and buttons to your email campaigns. Your clients can also add social links and buttons to their email templates using the WYSIWYG editor.
In addition, we've backed up social sharing with robust real-time reports, complete with Facebook likes, tweets and forwards via email. It's also possible to share sent campaigns from within your account.
Many thanks for all your feedback and patience while we've worked on bringing social integration to the app. Find out more about social sharing in our blog, or get in contact with us, should you have any questions or suggestions :)
