    Is there a way to check if selections made in two fields are identical?

    Asked by djotformr on December 07, 2013 at 02:01 PM

    I want to provide two list of E mail addresses. User must pick same entries from the two lists to ensure that he is picking the correct one. Is it possible to have such kind of validation in a form ?

    Thanks for asking. Our product currently has no "compare field selections" (or "compare field entries") functionality. However, if the form's full source is embedded into a web page of your own, a custom script can be added to that page to perform the validation.

    If you would like to proceed with such a solution, we'd be happy to provide the script.

    I should have stated that there's an exception to the above where entered emails can be compared. Please see this guide for details.
