    Asked on August 05, 2017 at 08:51 AM


    I want to email my list, and ask them a simple yes/no question.

    Now sure, i can send them to a JotForm page and have them answer the question there, but that would decrease the number of people who will be bothered clicking the link.

    So what i would like to do is just email them a question and have them click Yes/No 
    And then have Jotform store the answers

    How can i do this ?

    I am not sure if I understand your query correctly. If you want to send an email to your list using JotForm, unfortunately, it is not possible. If you want to open the form based on an answer, it is still required to open the form either by embedding on any of your web pages or using the direct link. 

    Hope this information helps! Let us know if you are referring something different. We will be happy to help.

    No that's not my questions
    I can send a form from MailChimp and I will, that's fine
    But inside the email I want to ask a question
    So for example of you are on my email list then you will receive a question
    like this inside your email
    " Do you like the color white or black"
    A. White
    B. Black
    Then they can simply click the answer within the email,
    That's what I want, I want my users to click the answer to the question
    within the email

    That's possible but you can only hyperlink the answers with your form URL in the email message. So once they click the hyperlinked answer, it would redirect to your form that auto selects the selected answer. So the only thing they need to do is to press the submit button to submit the form.

    Here's an example of how it would look like in the email message.


    The answers are not yet hyperlinked, but you can hyperlink them with the form URL with extra parameters that populate the answer.

    Example for the Yes answer, you can hyperlink it with this URL

    For the No answer, you can hyperlink it with 

    Here's how to populate the fields via URL parameters

    Unfortunately, if you want is to embed the form directly in the email message, I'm afraid that won't work. The form has to be loaded in the browser.
