Email Client Issues

Can't Send Email: It is possible your browser and/or email client security settings will not allow you to load the email client after clicking the Share button. Please try to Enable Third Party Cookies to solve this issue. The image below is an example of what a user sees after clicking the Share button. 


Can't Tap on Launch Email in Gmail: If the EnsembleLive Launch URL Email text is not a clickable link when you open the email in Gmail, we recommend you open the email on an different email client on your mobile device. For example, Gmail (web or app) disables the EnsembleLive iOS launch link. One work around is to open the email in an alternate email client (Mail on iPhone).
