    Adding JotForm to email message

    Asked by marie sidlar  on September 11, 2016 at 11:53 AM

    Is it possible to place a jotform inside an email message - so that the email recipient can make choices and perform calculations right inside the email?

    My research so far suggests this is not possible.  I know it's not possible with an excel form containing formulas. Is it possible under ANY circumstances?

    Our embed codes contains scripts that are not allowed in most email providers. There is a possibility that your email will be blocked or tagged as suspicious. This is the reason why it is not recommended to embed the form in an HTML email. I would suggest you to share the form's link instead. Here's a guide: How-to-send-a-form-via-email

    You can also create a fillable PDF form. This fillable PDF form is a PDF file that you can attach to your email message. Please check this page: https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
