Email Address Fields

Email Fields look and act the same as a Short Answer Field, except users must enter a valid email address when filling out the form.  By adding an Email Address Field to your form, you can utilize the Confirmation Email functionality to automatically send messages back to users that fill out the form. 

To add an Email Address Field to your form, click on the Email Field in the Form Builder Tools section on the left-hand side of the screen and drag it over to the appropriate place on your form.

The label for the field is set to "Email" by default, but you can change that if you like. 


This is what the field will look like on a form.  If a user tries to type in anything other than an email address into an Email Field, they will receive an error.

To ensure that a user is typing in a valid email address, you can click the "Validate" checkbox in the Email Field Editor on the left-hand side of the screen. However, you cannot restrict the
usage of particular email sources.

Please Note: Only one email address is allowed per field. Please add multiple Email Address Fields to allow for more than one address.


Email Validation

To add two email fields that validate against each other, check the validate checkbox on your confirmation email field.  The email validation will not actually confirm that the email address entered is valid, rather these fields check to be sure both email addresses match and that they contain domain data (@ and .com, .net, .org, etc.).
