    I want to create a form that will ask for the user to input data, including and email address, and then to verify that the email address they used is valid and belongs to them. Does JotForm do this and if so how difficult is it to set that up?

    Hi!

    - I want to create a form that will ask for the user to input data, including and email address, and then to verify that the email address they used is valid and belongs to them. Does JotForm do this and if so how difficult is it to set that up?

    Yes, you can achieve this with JotForm. We have two form layouts available; these are: classic layout and card layout.

    Reference: how-to-change-the-form-layout

    1. If you're using, the classic form layout; then you can use the Email Validator widget for this purpose.

    2. If you're using the card form layout; then you can use these instructions to enable email verification on the Email fields itself.

    I hope this information helps. If you have any further queries; let us know.

    Thank you!
