  • Ignore Campaign Level Tracking: By selecting this checkbox, the tracking parameters previously configured will not be applied here.

  • Icon Width: Use the slider or enter a number (pixels) to adjust the icons’ width.

  • Icon Spacing: Use the slider or enter a number (pixels) to adjust the spacing between icons.

  • Alignment: Left, center, or right align the icons.

  • Widget Padding: Add padding to the social widget as a whole (top and bottom in pixels).

  • Container Background Color: Click the field to use the color picker or enter a hex color code.

SOCIAL ICONS CONFIGURATION

Select the checkbox on each to include or exclude an element. Be sure to configure each of the below settings for as many icons that are being displayed in the email.

  • Icon Source: Enter a direct image URL or select an image from the image library.

  • Link to: Enter a specific social media URL to link shoppers to.

  • Deep Link: By selecting this checkbox, the mobile app will open. Deep linking is available by special request for customers leveraging Branch.io for mobile links.
