    360 Link: Email Template to Request a Referring Source to Add 360 Link

    • Product: 360 Link

    How do we ask a referring source (content provider) to set 360 Link as the OpenURL link service?

    When setting up referring sources in 360 Link, you may need to send an email to a content provider requesting that they activate 360 Link as the OpenURL linking service.
    The following is a template you can use for the email. Content in [brackets] will need to be removed as appropriate, because they are just instructions to help you create the email.
