A way to have someone answer yes/no question over email?

Hello,

I am looking to add a feature to my app which will allow site safety personnel to send a mass email (or SMS, once we have that setup) to everyone who has checked in at a specific location to confirm if they are on site or not, and if they are on site, if they are safe. The database is set up to track this sort of thing, but I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction for a way to do this in an email if there are any better ideas than below.

Should I just send a link to a page with some inputs?

I’m thinking the message would say something along the lines of:

An event has occurred at and administrators have requested all personnel on site check in. Please click “YES” to enter further information if you are on site, or “NO” if you are no longer on site.

YES

NO

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

You can put the links in your email that have parameters in the URL
For example:
The href link inside the yes button in the email:
https://yoursite.com?userid=abc&response=yes

For the no button it is the same as above just change yes to no

Then have bubble look for those parameters in the page link.

This requires the user to be directed back to your site which I don’t know if you want or not. Off the top of my head, I don’t know how to make it so they don’t have to be directed back to your site but my guess is there is a way to do this.
