Email Unsubscribe Settings

Here's some useful information about how your recipients will be able to opt-out from your Email communications. Head over here to read more about Consent, or here to read about all the different ways Profiles opt-in and out...

Profiles will be automatically opted out when they click the email's unsubscribe link. This link will lead them to a landing page where they need to confirm their wish to unsubscribe; depending on your options, you will either display a confirmation message or lead them to a page of your choice.

Make sure you add an unsubscribe link and that you adjust your unsubscribe settings.

For this example, we will use a Text Element. Directly on the Element, write the text for your items.

Make sure you write a clear, straightforward text for your Unsubscribe link.

3. Click on the circle next to Background colour to open the colour picker.

If you already have a standard colour, enter the colour code in the Hex box. Go ahead and enter the colour in RGB format if that's the method you prefer. The colour picker will save 16 of your recently used colours for each Email. Every new Email will have no recently used colours, but the colours will remain for each Email whenever you go back into editing.
