Is it possible to collect data from users directly from their email?

Here is what I am hoping for. QuickBase would send a weekly automatic email to a list of users. They open the email, and they see either a blank grid edit form or multiple blank fields of some kind. If, and only if, they have something to add, they type data into the fields and hit a submit button all within the email. QuickBase would then create and save a new record in the app based on this data. Is this possible natively?  If not, could it be done in some other fashion?

Not from within their email browser, but you can send them a link (via some custom button within quickbase) that would automatically take them to the report in question.

If they are "users" then setting up a subscription might be your best bet.

But, if you want to choose the time to send, a custom button and url field is the best route.
