    We are a small law firm and would like a way to allow our new client

    Asked by Bob Leonard on May 13, 2011 at 12:53 PM

    We are a small law firm and would like a way to allow our new clients to fill out the sometimes voluminous paperwork that we need at the beginning of a case.


    I understand that we can use your service to embed a form on our website, but we don't really want to do that.  Also, the people who run our website are very restrictive.


    We would like to be able to create a form and email it to our clients to fill in and email back.  Can JotForm do that?


    Alternatively, do you "host" forms so that we can send a link to your website to our clients and have them fill out the form on your website for subsequent emailing to us?


    Thanks for your response.

    Hi Bob

    Thanks for asking. As to having a form embedded in an email message for the recipient to complete and submit from her inbox, no, to my knowledge we do not presently have such a feature. However, the alternative method of emailing links to your JotForm forms is definitely feasible.

    You can configure a form to send its submissions to just you or have copies sent to others as well. It can also be setup to simultaneously send an autoresponse to the user.

    For details, please see the following articles in our user guide:

    Please let us know if you require clarification on this reply and feel free to enquire about other features of our forms.
