    We require people to give us their email address on our forms. When someone is submitting a form to us, is there a way to set-up the form to require them to fill-in their email a 2nd time.

    For example:

    Email address:

    Please retype your email address:

    If they don't match, the person filling out the form would get an error message and not be able to submit the form until they fix the problem.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    Hello Ken,

    Yes that is possible to achieve. You need to just enable the "Confirmation" feature of your email field. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/147-Adding-an-Email-Confirmation-Field

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Hi

    I have the same Q. However the above action doesn't stop them submitting the form.  Can you please advise?
