    Keep the form styling in Email

    Asked by ArmoryMusic on February 15, 2015 at 07:01 PM
    Is there a way to keep the form styling when copying the source code over like this? For example, all of the form fields are prefaced with a bullet point in the email. All HTML and design styling is disregarded.

    Notifications are highly customizable, you can customize it in any way you want. You may be able to stylize your notification base on your form but it's not possible to make it perfect since you can only do inline styles. External or internal style sheets are not allowed. We do not support it. Also, most email clients are very strict with HTML codes, they might get stripped when it doesn't meet their standards.

    Hope this gives you information. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Best Regards!

    This question was copied & pasted from another thread by a support team member,

    and I think the context was lost in the transition. The other thread (http://www.jotform.com/answers/390225-How-to-embed-Jotform-in-an-email) was asking about how to embed your form directly into your email, and the answer provided caused an email with strange looking formatting. There are bullet points in the email where there shouldn't be, for example. 

    Is there any other way to embed a form in an email that does not produce these strange formatting problems? Similar to the way Google Forms allows their forms to be emailed?
