You can embed the first question of your survey in your Email Invitation, as long as the first question is a supported question type. When a survey taker chooses an answer option in the email, they're sent to the first page of your survey to continue taking the survey.
To embed a question in an email:
You can choose whether to save the first response from the email instantly or to wait to save the response until the respondent clicks the Next or Done button. By default, the collector option is set to On and saves the first response instantly upon answering the question. However, if the embedded question has an Other Textbox or Comment field, recipient’s responses won’t be recorded from the email instantly—the response is only submitted when clicking the Next or Done button in the browser.
Password Protection isn't available when In-email Response Capture is On. To use Password protection, turn off In-email Response Capture.
How the first answer choice is saved is dependent on the In-email Response Capture collector option selection and whether the embedded question has an Other Textbox or Comment field. Regardless of whether the first answer is saved immediately or not, the survey taker is sent to the first page of the survey so they can continue answering the rest of the questions.
They'll see their response to the first question pre-selected in SurveyMonkey. Survey takers need to click Next on the first page to save their other responses and trigger any logic in your survey.
To embed a question in an email invitation, use a supported question type as the first question on page 1 of your survey:
To embed a question in an email invitation, your survey needs to meet these survey design requirements:
The settings and options applied to the question you want to embed may disqualify it or cause it to render differently in the email than what you see in your survey design.
If you update your survey design after scheduling your message and it no longer meets the requirements, we'll send the default email template without the embedded question.
