embed a form within an email

Hi,

I am looking for a way to may a CTA in an email a form action.  I am trying to do a one click registration for an event for known Leads.  I don't want to have the CTA in an email send a lead back to a landing page to fill out a form if I already have there information.  Is there a way to set this up where the known lead clicks the CTA link in an email that automatically registers them and send out the confirmation email?

Thanks,

Randall

The answer is "Yes, but don't do this with a click." Mail scanners will click your "instant" registrations and you don't want that.

Automatically posting the form should (though no guarantees) avoid most false positives.

MktoForms2.whenReady(function(form){

  form.submit();

});

On an LP with a form.

Sorry to bother you.  What I do is create a form, under From settings>>Form Theme>>Edit Simple Custom CSS and add the code provided.

Then use this form on a landing page and use the Landing page URL as the email CTA?

The CSS wouldn't be where this would go. You'd want to go into the LP itself and edit the HTML. If you have a Marketo form on your LP, you'd put it above the div where it starts, like this:

<script>

MktoForms2.whenReady(function(form){ 

  form.submit(); 

});

</script>

<div class="mktoForm" id="form1" mktoName="form1">
