    Sending forms in email

    Asked by Mark Jones  on September 23, 2016 at 08:41 AM

    I have a form to build and send to field technicians.  They don't always have access to WIFI.  

    Can I send the form, complete with dropdowns and checkboxes in email without a link to the form?

    I need to send the entire form to them in email, and they need to respond in email.  

    They won't have access to WIFI.

    It is possible to embed a form to email by getting the form's source code and pasting it to the body of your email as HTML. Please see How to get the Full Source Code of your Form.

    However, may I warn you that some email clients have very limited support to HTML emails causing some or all parts of your form to not display as expected. 

    So I would recommend  you to send form via email according to the below guide:


    Alternate possible solution may be to create a fillable PDF form. With the fillable PDF form, you can fill out your forms offline from any device, then submit them when you have internet (wifi) connection.

    If you have any query, or need further assistance, feel free to revert back.
