To get started, make sure you’re logged into your account interface. From there, you’re

going to click Digital Edition from the navigation menu on the left side of the page. Next, you’ll want to navigate to your most recent digital edition. If you don’t have a version set up yet, check out the link below to learn how.

Scroll down past your upcoming mailing until you see the cover of this month’s issue. If you want to send a past issue of your digital edition, you can always use the drop-down menu to select a different month. Click the cover of your digital edition, and you’ll be taken directly to the issue itself. This is where you’re going to grab the link for your digital edition. First, go to the address bar and highlight the URL, then click copy.
