Embed form in an automated email

Macorne ✭✭✭✭

I would like to be able to embed a form in an automated email that is sent out to people once a week, so that I can request status reports. I would like to use this, instead of an update request, so that I can have a historical record of previous status and comments.

Embedding the form will improve the user experience, especially for Project Owners who are not as familiar with Smartsheet. Lets be honest - Execs will take any excuse not to fill out a survey. Having to click a link that doesn't contain good information about where it is taking you can look like a scam - especially when it is not coming from an email within your network.

We love this idea too! While it's not a part of our current plan, this is exactly the kind of thing our team is thinking about every day. If we believe we can make this idea a reality, we'll plan to update the status here.

    The question about embedding a form has been asked several times, but I have not seen any responses on a solution. Does Smartsheet monitor these questions to assist in resolutions? I would really like to to utilize this functinality.

    Echoing this idea as this would be an awesome feature that would add a lot of versatility to the use of forms for teams that use forms for project updates (which I'm sure many teams do since this is something I learned from Smartsheet reps).

    Upvoting again in February 2024 for this function. Likeliness of response is higher for any kind of input from users if they do not have to click a link to get to the input. Would love to see an embedded form in automated email.
