    Hello,

    Is it possible to permission a form so that only certain users/email addresses can submit requests?

    Hi there,

    Do you want to restrict a specific domain only or whole email address? I'd like to know this, so I can think of a personalized method. There is no feature to do this, but a workaround can be made. 

    Example, you can hide form fields or the submit button when the email field contains the domain jotform.com. You only need to add conditional logic such as below:

    In order to create such restriction, you'll have to create that many conditions that would check the user's input. As my colleague explained in previous reply. I'm afraid we don't have another option.

    If you have any further questions, please let us know.

    Thank you!

    I apologize, my colleague just reminded me of Spreadsheet to form widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/spreadsheet_to_form

    You can set the list of allowed emails in Excel file, and if your users don't enter the proper email, you can set the conditional logic that will show the rest of the form.

    Here is the example form you can test:

    https://form.jotform.com/92244553290961

    Email: email1@example.com will work in that form.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you!
