    Hi there

    I refer to the following URL

    https://www.jotform.com/help/427-How-to-Verify-an-Email-Address-Before-or-After-Form-Submission

    My understanding is the same thing whether I take before or after, correct.

    Seems to be more complicated if I take after.

    For now, I will take only before.

    What is an advantage if I take after.

    I will wait for your any advice.

    I would say that both will do the work, but I lean towards the "before" option. Since it is easier to setup and user is not able to submit the form at all if he/she doesn't verify his email address.

    You just add the widget and you're good to go.

    If you want to do just a simple checking of the email address of the submitter then my advice is to go for the first option.

    If you have any further questions please let us know.

    Thank you!
