is it possible to have a form in an email? I'm needing to create a form that will be sent to a user based on a workflow variable. This email will have two field in it that will need to be filled out by the user. It would be nice if the user could fill out these fields within the email instead of clicking a link to the form. Any help? thanks
Can you try out the method suggested in this post? - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/tudort/archive/2006/02/22/536800.aspx
Before sending it as an email, make sure that the infopath form is published to a SharePoint site which has common access. Otherwise the email recepient will not be able to open up the form.
But, do you really want a form in Email? Imagine you've made it, and after your user filled in the form and clicked the "Submit" button, shall you send him another email to say "You form has been submitted and saved!" with an "OK" button in it? And, imagine you still have made it, and after your user click the "OK" button on the notification email, what's the next? Send him another email to show a list view with query conditions boxes from where he can launch the next round of operations?
Email is a message notification tool, just like a post man calls you at your door, but you still need to get to the door to retrieve your package by yourself, not by the call. So, give users a link in Email.
