    Asked on February 21, 2016 at 05:09 PM


    On a form user need to provided their email address for a fixed domain. So I need to input musk like _____________ @mysite.com So user will only input the email ID not domain part. And user will not able to change the @mysite.com part.

    Also user need to provide their twitter id. http://twitter.com/ ____________ Like that user will only input the part of twitter ID

    But input musk don't support unlimited character when provide '*' or '#'. It only supports a single character.

    How it can be done?

    A possible workaround would be to use regular textboxes, two for each link, and use conditions to display the full link correctly.

    1. Add four textboxes, the full link textboxes will capture the text and combine them to make a full url

    2. Setup the conditions as seen below by following this guide: Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic


    3. On the conditions wizard, select Update/Calculate Field and add the conditions below.

    Here's how the input should look after.

    Thanks for the work around. its very well. But 4 text box is really clutter.  Isn't it possible to update input musk by jotform to support not only single character but also multiple character. It will make the input musk more powerful.

    Unfortunately, that is currently not possible to do in the form builder. 

    If you want to limit the number of fields shown in your form, you can simply set the other textbox as hidden.

    1. Click the gear icon beside the field you want to hide.

    2. Click Hide Field

    This is how it would appear after:

    Then when you receive submissions, you will still see the full link in the submission page and the email notification.
