iFrame blocks can be used to embed interactive elements that are hosted elsewhere into your campaigns, like videos or polls. iFrames can also be used as a workaround to embed content that isn’t supported directly in our content blocks, such as advanced surveys.

How to Create an iFrame Block
- Sign in to Studio.
- Click Create.
- You can start with a blank campaign, choose a template to edit, or add an iFrame block to an existing campaign. (For an overview of all campaign creation options, please refer to Create a New Campaign.)
- For a blank campaign, click + Add block to choose from a selection of content blocks.
For a template or existing campaign, hover over where you want to add the iFrame and click the + sign.
- Select a code block and click Select Blocks.
- On the Design page, hover over the block and click the Edit icon.
- On the Content panel, replace the code with a new iFrame, or replace the Website URL with the target embed URL.
Note: Since email does not support embedded content, you will need to include an image for email campaigns or a blank image will be displayed in its place in the delivered email.
From the Design panel, you can edit the appearance of your iFrame block.
- Complete your campaign, including all of the Deliver settings.
- Click Review in the bottom right corner to review your campaign summary and projected delivery.
- Then schedule and click Publish to publish the campaign, or Content Creators can save the campaign as a draft for review by selecting the save icon from the top right corner.
What Members See
iFrame blocks appear under a content card in one of the feed views in the web experience.
Clicking on the associated content card will immediately open a new view. In this view, you can view the iFrame, bookmark the content, and add likes. You can also interact with the comments and share the content (if these features are enabled in Deliver).
iFrame blocks also appear under a content card in one of the feed views in the mobile app experience.
Tapping on the content card will open a new view. In this view, you can view the iFrame, bookmark the content, and add likes. You can also interact with the comments and share the content (if these features are enabled in Deliver).
Email does not support embedded content as webpages do, so iFrames cannot be rendered directly in the body of an email. Instead, users will see a fallback image if one has been uploaded. If no fallback image is included then instead a blank image will be displayed in its place in the delivered email.
