Create links to sections within an email message
How to create a mini skip menu in an email message. Clicking on items in the skip menu transports the viewer to the full story.
One feature that can be nice -- particularly for e-newsletters -- is a linked skip-menu/table of contents at the top of the message. By clicking on a section/article name, they can jump down to the story/section they wish to view. Here's how to set one up.
- Start by creating a bulleted list with your table-of-contents. Below it, you can add your full-length story, complete with title and body text.
- Now we're going to set up a bookmark next to the title of the story.
Place your cursor next to the title, and then select "Insert" from the top horizontal menu, and then click on the 3 elipses option and choose "Bookmark."
- A pop-up window will prompt you to create a name for the bookmark:
- Now that we have our bookmark set up, we can link the first bullet point in our table of contents to it.
Highlight the first item in your table of contents, and then from the "Insert" tab in the top horizontal menu, select "Link." A pop-up window will appear. Select "Place in this document" from the options at the left, and then select the bookmark we just created. Click "OK", and voila! Your hyperlink is in place!
