    Thank you for contacting us. Yes you can do that however, you must set it implicitly or predefine the email address.

    Please see this demo form:


    As you can see, from the demo, it pre-fill the form with the email address using the ID of the email textbox. You can distribute your form links via email using this method.

    Just so you know, you can get the email ID by clicking the cog/gear wheel icon and click Properties


    Please let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you
