    I am requesting you to consider adding the following functionality.

    A dual text field which will identify if someone has entered the correct entry twice. In the case where you want them to verify the correct "password" or "account number" etc...

    If they don't enter the values correctly in both fields,it will notify them with a popup.

    I have had this need in various situations.

    Thanks you

    You can do this now with confirm email. There may be support for other fields later I am not sure though.

    Hi Rich,

    That's only available for the email tool. It's called, email confirmation. Here's how:

    Unfortunately, we do not have that for any other fields other than email. We can't provide that on the password tool as well since there's no point of using that there since we do not support login forms here.

    Thank you!

    Is there any way to change the "Email does not match" error popup message. To something like "Entry Does not match".
    This would work perfect if it were not for that error message.

    If Jotform could edit just two options on the Email Address option, it could be used for many more things that require validation.
    IE: Account numbers, Reservationnumbersetc....
    You would have to change 2 things
    1. Make "Enter a valid email address". optional. So if you don't want Jot form to display the message "Enter a valid email address" you can shut that off.
    As long as the characters entered in both fieldsmatch, it would be successful.
    2. Make the "Error message" editable. So someone could change it from "Email Does Not Match" to "Entry Does Not Match" etc...
    If you could pass that along to "Feature request" dept. i would greatly appreciate it.

    1. That's possible by injecting custom CSS codes to your form. How to Inject Custom CSS Codes to your Form. Unfortunately, making it's input type from email to text to allow character entry isn't possible.

    2. Here's how you can changed the error message. How to Change/Translate Form Warnings. Just find the appropriate text and edit it there.

    Since this isn't doable via form builder, I have now added this to our feature request list. We will inform you here for any updates. Sorry though but we can't provide any ETA on every request. Rest-assured, we will keep you informed for any progress.

    Thank you so much!
