    Can I embedd the form's url directly into an e-mail of my own and not through the "embed form" tool?

    Asked by ComArqCorresponsabilidad on July 27, 2011 at 11:13 AM

    I don't have a webpage yet. When I use the "body" section of the e-mail media tool, i receive, as part of the contents in the message all the format scripts.  Besides, I get a message from G-Mail saying: this e-mail may not have been sent by gmail.  Please advice.

    Hi there,

    Yes, you can embed the form's URL into your email editor's body section. The format of a typical JotForm form URL is as follows:

    http://www.jotform.com/form/<11-digit Form ID>
    i.e., http://www.jotform.com/form/12345678910

    For SSL-enabled (secure) forms just add the letter "S" iin http://... so that it becomes https://...

    I hope I understood your inquiry correctly. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    Thank you for using JotForm!

    Hi ComArqCorresponsabilidad,

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    Yes, you can inlcude your form to an email and have your clients fill that form directly from your email. I've attached the some instructions and 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

    Click "Email"

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

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

    And hit the "Send Email" button.

    Or you can simply provide a link for the form in your email just like what allan said.

    If you want to manually enter the form to your email, you may also consider this thread helpful 


    If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us.
