    How can I send my jotform via email?

    Asked by neemagautama on October 01, 2014 at 09:07 AM

    I have created a feedback form to send to staff and students at my workplace.  How do I send the form to them via email.  Is there a link that I can put on the email?

    You can find the URL of your form by entering into the Edit Mode and clicking the Preview button from the top menu.

    The URL shows up in the "Form URL" field.

    If you have any questions, please post them here.


    Best Regards.

    You can also embed the form directly to an email. This will allow your users to fill out the form from the email itself, rather than redirecting to a link.


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



    and select "Source"



    Copy the source code and click "Back" button



    Now, Click "Email"






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






    Delete the containing message and paste the source code you have copied a while ago, then click "update





    And hit the "Send Email" button.



    Now your user will receive the email with the actual form as the message.

    As stated previously, you can also simply send a link.

    Made a test with this method of copying the code in the body area and what I received was the pasted code, not the form.

    Depending on the email service you are using, you may need to change how you view emails.  For example, here is Microsoft's guide on how to make the changes:


    If you are still unable to get the source code embed for emails working, please create a new thread and we will be happy to address your issue separately.  Just let us know which email provider you are using and the process you used to embed the form.

    I have a calculator I'm trying to send and I get this:



    But should be this:

    Unfortunately, depending on the email provider and the settings for each account, embedding the full form to the body of an email will have mixed results.  Sending your users a link to the form itself, rather than embedding the full form to an email is usually much more consistent. 

    If you would like us to try to get your form to work embedded to an email, please create a new thread and let us know the form you are working with.  This thread is quite old and will be much easier to follow up with a fresh one.
