I know you can insert a survey, but can you insert a poll into the body of an email, and if so how can that be done?

Hey guys,

I'm sorry to say, but the HTML for emails doesn't support inserting a poll into the body of an email. You can link to it in your email, though.

Is this still true? Are we not able to place polls into the body of an email?

Hi Healthline,

Unfortunately it is not possible to insert a survey or poll into an email.  The reason being is that in order to receive results of the survey or poll, the inputted information must be "sent back" to Benchmark.  This can't be done within an email because to simply put it, there is no internet connection from within an email to send back the information much like in a javascript application or similar, which is not compatible with inboxes.  Surveys and Polls for the time being can only be hosted on a webpaged and can be linked to from the email.  We are hoping for one day for Email Providers to change this.

Thanks,
