    Hi jojo29

    Thanks for your query. If you are referring to embedding a form into an email message, according to Aytekin's reply in this thread, it's not practical. However, you can include just a link (text or image) to the form in the message.

    As far as receiving the completed questionnaires back in your email, that's no problem. By default, notifications of submissions, containing all of the questions and answers, are sent to the address on record in your Account Settings (bottom right of the My Forms page after logging in) but you can always change the recipient address in the notification. Please see the following pages in our user guide:

    Understanding Reply-To and Recipient Settings on E-mail Wizard
    Receiving Emails on Form Submissions

    All of the submissions made via that form can also be seen on the form's Submissions page. That page can be accessed by via the My Forms page. Click the form and then the Submissions button in the toolbar:

    If you require clarification on anything or want to know about other features of our product, do let us know. Our team would be glad to help you.

    hmmm, I can't see how that is any easier than me just doing that without using this site. I thought I could create the questionnaire on here and send it out as an interactive online questionnaire that respondents can quickly complete and click finish and it all comes back to me - am I making sense? Can you help with this?

    Hi jojo29,

    Thank you for getting back with your explanation, although this purpose is exactly what Jotform is built for. We might be missing something and we'd like to make sure we understand your requirements correctly.

    Kindly provide a more detailed description of your requirements (i.e. the list of questions and the way you want it to be displayed) in order for us to help you accordingly. Perhaps providing a sample website with the questionnaire you want to replicate will be great.

    We shall await your response. Thank you for trusting Jotform!
