Does in-app messaging have the capability to do basic data collection? I would like to deliver an in app message to a user that has an input field where I could collect an email address, for example.

Hi @viabledish,

Our in-app notifications are great for bringing your users' attention to certain aspects of your app or site, but unfortunately, they're limited in that they cannot accept form data.For this type of service, I would recommend looking elsewhere for other signup form interstitials. Once you have that data, Mixpanel is a great place to use it for analytical purposes.

I do think this good feedback on our product. Mind posting this in the ideas section (rather than Q&A) so that it can get some votes from the community and better visibility from our product team? Adding the topic tag of "In-app"  “Form” & “Data Collection” might also help for better search-ability.
