Adding an Unsubscribe Link

Updated by Justine Hong

You are required to have an unsubscribe link in any email that goes out on Switchboard’s email platform. Here is how you can add this link to your emails.

Using the Visual Editor:
  • Highlight the text you want to hyperlink and click the link button.
  • Click on the drop down in the top right and choose “unsubscribe link”
While the HTML editor allows you to type {{sb_unsubscribe}} to call the link, this does NOT work in the visual editor.
Using the HTML Editor
  • Custom Fields - you can input the {{sb_unsubscribe}} link in your html via the custom fields menu found at the bottom of the page. This will place the full link into the body of your email.

  • Content Blocks - you can also add the unsubscribe link in your raw html through content blocks. This drops the below code into your HTML so you can easily customize the hyperlinked copy.
    <a href="{{ sb_unsubscribe }}" target="_blank">Click here to unsubscribe</a>

How did we do?
