I'd like to setup an automatic email that sends out Skuid pages. I already have the automatic email setup through APEX, but not sure how to get the Skuid page to display in the email. Anybody have any idea how to do this?

Right now it just sends a link to the Skuid page, but it would be amazing to send the Skuid page its self.

As I understand it, html can only be embedded statically. In other words, you'd have to somehow acquire and convert the HTML to something that would compatible to the user. You could not feasibly or easily show Salesforce data in the email in this way.

Here's a few articles about it.

Have you considered using Conga Composer? It may be better suited for this.

Thank you, we just got away from Drawloop though and use SF and Skuid to generate PDFs and Email them , but it doesn't embed the Skuid page, just creates it as an attachment and sends it using an Email Template

And you've been able to send emails using just docraptor and apex?
