Use case: When you want a subscriber to join another email list by clicking a button, but you don’t want to redirect to an external web page.
Lite hack: Create a button that automatically adds subscribers to a group using the event block.
If you’ve used the traditional button block, you know that the button only appears if you add a destination URL. And to move people into a specific group, you have to create an automation that’s triggered when a subscriber clicks that URL.
You can skip the external link and the automation by creating an event button that automatically adds subscribers to a selected group, without the need for a destination URL and automation.
The event block contains a button—except this button is used for collecting RSVPs, and therefore, doesn’t require a destination URL.
By simply removing the content you don’t need, such as the heading and subtitle, you can hack the event block to make it look like a regular old button block—except you won’t need to add a URL.
Then add your design, some additional text or headings around it, and voila!
