    Is there a way to require accurate email address?

    Asked by JellyNCam28 on January 06, 2015 at 12:11 PM

    Hello!  I want to be able to add people who take my assessments to my distribution lists but a small percentage of them will put fake names and fake email addresses.  Is there a way to require a real email address? Example, it has to have @gmail, ymail, yahoo, etc. instead of aslkjflajsdflaksjflskjdf.

    We do not have specific email validation on the email field but I think the following workaround might help.


    You can create a condition that would show the submit button when the email field contains accepted email domain e.g. "@organization.com". In this method, your form users will not be able to submit the form if they will not use email with "@organization.com".


    Check this screenshot:


    With the email field, you can also block the free email addresses. Just open the email field properties, and set the following.



    So when user enters free email e.g. @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, @hotmail.com and etc... The following validation message will appear.



    Here's an example form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42245676999979?


    In order to reveal the submit button, enter an email that contains @organization.com e.g. me@organization.com


    Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, let us know here.
