    Form is not validating

    Asked by ctvishal on July 28, 2016 at 01:30 PM

    Hi There,


    Does JotForm provide server side validation? Some users on the site are submitting empty form entries by just filling the catcha. How can I fix this?

    You can set the field as "required" so that the user cannot submit the form without completing it. 

    1. Just select the field and click the Required button on the top

    2. You can also click the properties icon of the field and choose Required.

    If the user did not fill up the fields, a pop-up message will appear.

    We also have a widget called Email Validator. This will make sure that a valid email is used on your form through a pass-code verification process.
