How do I create an Unsubscribe link to use with our mailings?
Oracle B2C Service
In a mailed document, unsubscribe links allow your contacts to opt out of future emails. You can create an unsubscribe link that sets the global opt-in field or a custom opt-in field.
When contacts click an unsubscribe link in an email, a page opens asking them to confirm whether they want to unsubscribe. When you set up the link, you can choose to set the opt-in field to No either before or after contacts confirm through the Unsubscribe page.
Note: When mailing documents, the staff member must include appropriate opt-in filters for the audience segment used with that mailing. The application defaults to take into account the global opt-in field.
To insert an unsubscribe link in a document, use the steps below:
- Open the document for editing.
- On the HTML or Text tabs, from the Toolbox, click the Unsubscribe Link option.
- In the pop-up window, set which opt-in field the link is associated with -- either the global opt-in or a custom opt-in field.
- Set the Mode field. You can either prompt the user and then set the field or set the field first, and then prompt the user.
- Enter the text to use for the link in the Text field.
- If you wish, specify a class, style, and target for the link.
- Click OK.
