Before you start

Things you need to know:

  • You must have access to a server to upload any files to.

Send a unique file link to each of your contacts

In this example, we're going to explain how to send each of your contacts a unique link to a file, allowing you to control which contacts can see which file.

  1. Upload your files to a server.

  2. Create a spreadsheet that has two columns of data - one column for the URLs that link to the files on your server, and another column with the email address to which you want to send the file. A URL and an email address must be on the same row.

  3. Create a new contact data field to store the URL against (let's call the contact data field 'file_url'). This contact data field must have a data type of 'Text'.

  4. Map the email addresses to the 'email' contact data field and map the URLs to the 'file_url' contact data field.

  5. Create your campaign, and add a hyperlink.

  6. Enter the Link (URL) to https://@file_url@ (this personalises the link for each contact).


When contacts click this link in your campaign, their unique file will download from the URL that you mapped to their 'file_url' contact data field.


Make sure that the URLs in your spreadsheet don't include http:// or https://. One of these protocols will be added to the URL by default. If any of your URLs already include one of these protocols when uploaded then they won't work.
