    The embed code doesn't work in Gmail or any email body. The form works only when the form URL is viewed directly on web browsers, and if the embed code is embedded on a website page. The reason is because the email does not load back end codes like javascripts, this is for security reasons, this is to avoid users unwanted and suspicious programs which runs or are written in programming languages like Javascript.

    Thanks.
