How do I make a one-click unsubscribe link in Listserv?

Applies to: Grid System

  1. Your list must be configured with the 'Mail-Merge' flag set to 'Yes'. To check for this flag, follow these steps:

    a.) Log into your listserv owner account then click 'List configuration --> Manual List Configuration'.
    b.) Verify that 'Mail-Merge=Yes' exists in the List Header information box. If it does not exist, please contact support and ask that we re-configure your list to include this setting.

     

  2. Once you have confirmed the Mail-Merge setting is enabled, you can create the custom footer that will include the one-click 'unsubscribe' to the bottom of messages sent to the list.

    a.) Log into your listserv owner account then click 'Customization' --> 'Mail Templates'.
    b.) From the 'Select Template Category' dropdown, select 'All Templates' then click 'Select'.
    c.) Select 'Bottom banner for plain text postings [BOTTOM_BANNER]' from the 'Select Template' dropdown, then click the 'Edit Template' button.
    d.) Add the following text to the 'Contents' text area:

    *******
    To unsubscribe, click the following link:
    &*TICKET_URL(YOURLISTNAME-L,SIGNOFF);
    *******
    
    Please be sure to replace 'YOURLISTNAME-L' above, with your actual list name. To save your changes, click 'Update' then 'Reload'.

    e.) From the 'Select Template Category' dropdown, select 'All Templates' then click 'Select'.
    f.) Select 'Bottom banner for HTML postings [BOTTOM_BANNER_HTML]' from the 'Select Template' dropdown, then click the 'Edit Template' button.
    g.) Add the following text to the 'Contents' text area:
    *******
    <a href="&*TICKET_URL(YOURLISTNAME-L,SIGNOFF);" mce_href="&amp;*TICKET_URL(YOURLISTNAME-L,SIGNOFF);">Click here to unsubscribe</a>
    *******
    
    
    Now any emails you send to the list will include a one-click unsubscribe feature for your list subscribers.
