Hi - Is anyone embedding a lead capture form within an email so the person can just complete the form there and hit submit? Are we even able to do this? Thanks!

Hey @Clarissa  currently HubSpot forms render using Javascript and external endpoints. Email clients do not allow for Javascript to run within emails and most don't allow external scripts to be called upon for security reasons (allowing this would allow not so nice people to pull in not so nice scripts into your inbox/computer). 

Due to this forms in email is not currently possible due to the way HubSpot forms are built and the lack of compatibility with forms in email in general.

 

Campaign monitor did a great writeup on this here: https://www.campaignmonitor.com/blog/email-marketing/2007/11/how-forms-perform-in-html-emai/

 

This is something definitely on our radar though and we would love to explore this within the future when the compatibility is far greater but for now technical limitations blocks this from being a possibility.
