Provide Bronto users with the ability to change url destinations for an email that is currently sending or already sent
We would like the ability to change the destination of URLs after an email has been sent or is in the process of sending.
There are times when destination URLs need to change either due to user error, or due to changing landing pages for sales. It would be great to have the ability to adjust the destination url for links in emails on the fly for emails that have ALREADY been sent.
Pleased to report that this has been completed! Link Repair is now available for any sending or sent deliveries. This blog post provides more information:
Do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions, or you can contact Support if you run into any technical issues.
Thanks so much!

Yes, this would be a great feature to have! I know other ESPs do let you change your URL for those reasons listed below.
PLEASE BRONTO! enable this feature for us!
An additional help would be some sort of warning or highlight in the message editor which would tell you if you entered a URL with invalid formatting, such at "http/missingslashcolon.com". While this wouldn't help with harrypottershop.clm, it would help in other circumstances.

To clarify (since I think I'm the one who opened this although it says Amonymous), a few times a year due to human error there's a bad link in our emails. Let's say the link goes to harrypottershop.clm instead of harrypottershop.com and we missed this error during testing. There should be a simple form in the Bronto site for each email that shows each randomly generated Bronto links in one column, and the destination link in another column. An icon next to each destination link would let you edit that URL. In this way we could quickly and easily change harrypottershop.clm to harrypottershop.com and anyone who clicked the link in the email moving forward would be redirected to harrypottershop.com instead of getting an error in their browser.
Possible to add this feature prior to Q4?

Most other email clients allow users to edit redirect links post-send. Bronto doesn't have that ability, and it should. If a link is incorrect once the email deploys, we would have the ability to update the link on the server so when the redirect hits the server, it would take the clicker to the right destination. PLEASE! Thank you!
