The Email control allows you to capture an email address from the user.
The Email control consists of a single line text box and a label. The text box has Email pattern recognition validation built in to it. The label should be used to inform the user of the type of data to enter in to the text box.
Add to the Template
The Email control can be added from the controls toolbar in the Template.
Once you have added the control you must set the label text that will be displayed above the Email text box.
If you would like the Email control to be a required field, you can check the "Is Required?" checkbox.
Use in the Checklist
The Email control displays in the Checklist as below.
The Email text box performs pattern matching validation to ensure that any value entered in to the text box is an Email address. If the validation fails an error will be displayed below the text box.
When an Email control is marked as required we will perform validation when the user completes the task. We will not allow the task to be completed until a value has been entered in to the text box.
Validation error messages are shown below the text box.
If you try to complete a task outside of the checklist (e.g. from the Dashboard) and it fails validation we will notify you of the validation failure via a pop-up message.
