    I woulod like to create a form, embed it into an email message, and have receipients submit the completed form, also vis email, like an email form. Is this possible with Jotform?  If not, do you know of any 'form software' that would accomplish this? Thank you.

    Hi a,

     Yes, you can make your clients directly fill your form from your email itself. And it will not affect on how the notification works, thus, you will still be able to receive notifications whenever they hit the submit button. I've attached some illustrations for you to follow. Hope this helps.

    In your form builder, under "Setup & Embed" tab, click "Embed Form" and select "Source"

    Copy the source code and click "Back" button

     http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l618/jotformtech/1-2-src.jpg

    Click "Email"

    Enter the receiver's email and click "HTML" at the bottom.

    Select everything and paste the source code, then click "update

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l618/jotformtech/2-3-emailform.jpg

    And hit the "Send Email" button.

    Or you can simply provide a link for the form in your email.

    Looks like 'email' is option is gone by now from the options. How to proceed from step 3?

    Thanks in advance.
