    Generating a short and memorizable code for Email Validator widget

    Asked by Carer on January 09, 2016 at 08:46 AM

    If I might respectfully add the following for consideration by the dev team:

    The LONG random code is Not needed. A short 4 or 5 digit code that can be memorized by the user is Better! Why, because users will not always be filling in the form on the same machine as they pick up their email. For example, the email arrives on their smart phone, the code is (ex) 1234 (randomized), they can Easily remember this and enter it! It is still perfectly validating the email address and increasing users response where their email is on another device! Win Win.

    I have now forwarded this thread to our developers as a feature request. Again, we can't promise any timeframe for this, but if there are updates, you should know it via this thread.

    Hi Guys,

    Comments above aside, we were talking in an alternate thread about the email validator allowing for a hidden field on the form to show the validation link coming from the form owner, and not from Jotform. Currently, the validation code is emailed to the form user from Jotform, better to be coming from the form owner. Is this any closer to implementation. Would love to think its a reasonably straight forward adjustment?

    Anyway, hope you are well.
