Step by Step Instructions to Create an Inline Email in Zoho Survey - Online Help Guide

Inline Email

Inline emails work perfectly when you want to embed a question from your survey in an email. Select a question, and you can distribute the survey over email with the help of an HTML setup that works with any email marketing software. Selecting an answer from the email takes your respondent to the live form URL. You can also add custom variables within the HTML code to identify the respondents.
