In this article, we will show you how to embed a Google Form in an email. Simply follow the process below.
Follow the steps below to embed a Google Form in an email.
Navigate to your Google Form and click on the "Send" button located at the top right of the page. This action opens a window that offers various options for sharing your form, including email, link sharing, and embedding.
Within the send options, select the "<>" (embed) icon to reveal the HTML embed code for your form. This section allows you to adjust the form's dimensions to ensure it fits well wherever you plan to embed it.
Adjust the width and height settings if necessary, then click the "Copy" button to copy the embed code. This code is intended for use in embedding the form on websites or platforms that accept HTML inputs.
Directly embedding Google Forms within emails, such as those sent through Gmail, is not supported due to limitations in HTML rendering by most email clients. This means you cannot directly embed the form into an email and expect it to function as it does on a webpage.
For Web Page Embedding: Paste the copied embed code into the HTML section of your website or any platform that allows for HTML editing, placing your form directly on the site.
For Email Sharing: Instead of embedding, share a direct link to your form in emails. We will explain in more detail the steps in the next section.
Follow the steps below to share a direct link to your Google Forms in an email.
Click the "Send" button on your Google Form and copy the form's link from the link tab in the pop-up window.
Open your preferred email account and start composing a new email to share the Google Form.
Highlight the text where you want to embed the Google Form link and click the link icon.
Add the Google Form link to your email body by hyperlinking text with the form's link. Click 'OK'
Before sending to recipients, email the form to yourself or a colleague to ensure the link works.
Confirm the link works, then send your email to the intended recipients with the embedded Google Form link.
Alternatively, use Google Forms to directly email the form by entering recipients' addresses and sending through the platform. Click the "Send" button in your form, then select the email tab.
Enter your recipients' email addresses, add a message if desired, and click "Send." This method bypasses the need to use your own email client.
