    How can I embed a form, that people can submit, into an email to send out?

    Asked by DrRich84 on July 14, 2014 at 03:26 PM

    Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to send people an email with a form showing and working within the email. I see how to embed it in a website, but was wondering if there is a similar option for email. As far as I can see, it looks like sending the form link is the closest thing to it. Are there any other options?  Thank you for your time :)

    It is possible to embed forms to email but I'm afraid it is not going to work. Emails are very strict with HTML formatting. Also, Jotform requires a browser with javascript enabled in order for it to run properly. I'm afraid email clients doesn't have the ability to execute javascripts so the form will definitely not able to work. We highly recommend using the form URL on emails instead of embedding the form. This should work better.

    Thanks! :)
