Braze Learning courseLink templates

This article covers how to create link templates to use for email messaging.

Link templates allow you to append parameters or prepend URLs to all links in an email message. This is most often used for the following use cases:

  1. Appending Google Analytics query parameters to all links in a given email message
  2. Prepending a URL to all links in a given email message

To create a link template, navigate to the Templates & Media page, and select the Link Templates tab. You can create an unlimited number of link templates to support your various needs. Click Create Link Template to get started.

There are two types of link templates you can create:

If you want to add a string or URL before the links in your email message, create a new link template and set the Template Position to Before URL. This will allow you to enter a string that will always get prepended to your URL.

A preview section is provided to give you an example of the insertion process.

Template Position, Prepend URL, and Template Preview fields for the link template insertion process before a URL.

If you want to add query parameters after a URL in your email message, create a new link template and set the Template Position to After URL. This will allow you to enter query parameters (value=something) to the end of each URL.

You can have multiple parameters appended to the end of a URL.
