    Is it possible to embed a form in an email?

    Asked by Bethshalomkc on June 02, 2016 at 11:39 AM


    I would like to send out a survey. Is it possible to embed a form via email so that when respondents open their email, they can complete and submit the form directly from their email?


    Thank you!

    Unfortunately, it is not recommended to embed the form in a HTML email. Most email provider does not support script in HTML email. You might be able to send it but the recipient provider might block it, tag it as a spam or even a malicious email.

    You will also be having a hard time designing it because there are email provider that doesn't allow external stylesheets. JotForm is using external stylesheets and scripts.

    I would recommend you sharing or emailing the forms direct link instead. Here's a guide: How-to-Send-a-form-via-email
