Build Your Forward to a Friend form

Knowledge Level: 
Time: Less than 5 minutes
Suggested Skills: General
Objective: This article covers how to build your Forward to a Friend form. The Forward to a Friend Form is available only in the Full Email Editor. It is important to recognize that this feature is quickly becoming obsolete as it is redundant with the "Forward" feature in email clients. The benefit to using a form is the ability to track. However, usage of the feature by contacts is dramatically low.
