Enable the web version of your marketing email to automatically generate a web page using the contents of the email.

Enable and configure the web version of your email

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Marketing > Email.
  • Hover over your marketing email and click Edit.
  • In the content editor, click the Settings tab.
  • Click > Advanced settings to expand the section.
  • Click to toggle the Web version switch on. Next, customize the following settings:
    • Page title: the text of the web version that appears in the browser title bar.
    • Page URL: the URL of the web version. Click the domain dropdown menu to select a connected domain. In the text field, enter the page slug. Use only a "/" to publish to the home page of the domain.
    • Meta description: the meta description of the web version.
    • (Optional) Expire page on a specific date: select the Expire page on a specific date checkbox if you want to redirect the web version of the email to a HubSpot page or external URL at a scheduled date and time.

  • If you have a Marketing Hub Professional or Enterprise account and you're using the classic email editor, you can edit the web version of the email in the design manager.
    • Below Web version information, click Edit web version contents. The email template will open in the design manager in a new browser tab or window.
    • In the template editor, click the View As Web Page module and edit the Default content in the module inspector.

Please note: the email's web version URL will not work when your email is still a draft. The URL will lead to a live page after your email is sent.

  • If you don't see the Web version switch in the advanced settings, and see the message You need to include a web version module in your template to create a web version of this email, add the View As Web Page module to the email template.
    • In the Template section, hover over the template thumbnail and click Edit template.
  • The email template will open in the design manager in a new browser tab or window. Search for the View As Web Page module and add it to the template.
  • In the upper right, click Publish changes to take the template changes live.
If you're using a custom coded template, ensure that the template includes either the {{view_as_page_section}} or the {{view_as_page_url}} token.
