Tutorials - Direct Link to your eCard

Link directly to your eCard

Most people send their CorpNote eCards by using their address book or manually copying and pasting their recipients email addresses. The advantage of this is you will see who picks up your eCards and how many times they viewed it. But, what if you want to send eCards by another method because your company has certain restrictions or you only know people through social media channels and don't have their email addresses?

To link directly to your eCard from your own email program, website, blog, follow this procedure:

  1. Send an eCard to yourself. Make sure it looks the way you want it to.

  2. Go to eCards > Sent Cards at the top of any screen.

  3. Find the eCard you want to link to and click it's 'Direct Link' button.

  4. The URL in the 'Direct Link for...' text box will give you the website address (URL) for the eCard.

  5. Click in the text box and highlight the text (Ctrl+A) and copy (Ctrl+C) the code and paste (Ctrl+V) into an email or a social media post.

If you are posting to Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+, paste the URL into your post or see our social media eCards tutorial for an easier alternative to the direct link feature.

If you are sending an email using your own email client (eg. Outlook or Gmail), paste the direct link into an email of your own design.

For CorpNote Multi-User Plan administrators sharing an eCard that contains an invitation or survey, view this detailed tutorial.

When you use the direct link feature, you do not have as much detail as to who is picking up your eCard. You will still see how many times it was viewed but each view will be marked as 'anonymous'. In your 'sent cards' bin, you can add comments to each eCard which will help you remember the delivery method you used.
