There are different reasons why the automatic link creation with %link% may not suit your needs:
To solve the issues above we have implemented the possibility to manually define the links for recipients.
Let's assume you have 60 employees in 3 different departments called HR, IT & MARKETING. Access via internet is only possible via Citrix Client - therefore links in emails won't work and the user needs to type the link manually in the Citrix Session. Now you want to track, how many employee of each department clicked on that phishing link. You would then create 3 recipient groups on LUCY called HR, IT & MARKETING. For each group, you define a unique link (example: “marketing”; Do not use any special characters in that link & if you specify this, please make sure it is unique across all recipients in the scenario).
When LUCY sends out the email the final link to your landing page will be “yourdomain.com/marketing” (see screenshot below).
This gives you the possibility to track in statistics, how many recipients have accessed that link. Of course, you won't be able to match the email address with the link click. Still you have an overview of how many people might have fallen for a specific scenario.
The manual link creation can also be used to track individual users in bigger campaigns. This requires that every user gets a unique link. With smaller campaigns, you can simply type those links in the web form of each recipient and save them. For larger campaigns, you could use tools like Excel and the CSV/TXT Import feature in the recipient groups to make this easier:
