How to Embed a Google Form in an Email

Follow the steps below to embed a Google Form in an email.

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.

4. Share Your Form Efficiently

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.

3. Insert Google Form Link into Email

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'

4. Send Test Email to Check Link Functionality

Before sending to recipients, email the form to yourself or a colleague to ensure the link works.

5. Distribute Email with Google Form to Recipients

Confirm the link works, then send your email to the intended recipients with the embedded Google Form link.

Alternative: Directly Email Google Form through Google Forms

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.
