    Is it possible to send a form that is viewable in email, like an email form?

    We would like it if the images and text would show up in the email and would redirect them to the products on our website.

    In order to show the form on the email, you can embed the iframe code, as shown on this animated image:

    (click on the source code icon "<>")

    On regards of redirecting user to a different page after submission, you can do it as explained on this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/38-Redirecting-Users-to-a-Different-Page

    Let us know if you need more help, we will be glad to assist you.

    Dear BDavid,

    Thank you for your help. My interest would be to place the form in the email body. But I am unable to do so. Following the procedures as you guide on "motion picture" but when I do the test referring to my own email I receive but with an empty window, not the form. Is it because the form is too big? I am looking forward to a new aid.

    Thank you

    Sound like you are sending the test with the Test Button, to really see the changes, please fill the form and submit it.

    Hello

    Thanks, but I'm not sending the test button. Fill in the recipient and subject shipment. It gives the message that has been sent. The e-mail arrives in my mailbox, but when I open the message window appears without the form. I am looking forward to a return, Thankful

    The reason the from in the iframe isn't being displayed is because most email clients do not process the iframe tag for security reasons.

    I would recommend you send the direct link in your email as opposed to embedding it as part of the message

    Iframes could potentially expose a user to malicious site and spoofing attacks from within the email client, kindly check this site for list of email clients that do and do not support iframe processing within an email body

    OK, I got it. There is a way to replace the URL (link) and put a button type "CLICK HERE TO SEE THE FORM"

    Thankyou
