Send Data or Email Content to a Creator Form via Email

Every form in Zoho Creator has its own email address. You can therefore just send an email to a form's email address to add a record in it.

Note:
  • This feature is not supported in the Free, Standard and Basic editions.
  • To enable your users to email form data, you need to share your form with them along with the permission to create records.
