I want to set up on my form a question asking for Email address. I want the restriction to register that username@domainname.com is the correct email format but it only offers Number, greater than, less than etc. 

 

I know other survey options such as Gizmo and Monkey offer this as default even in their free option but I cannot find it in Forms or Forms Pro. Is this functionality available?

Hi @juryk 

 

My understanding is that there's currently no validation available for email formatting within Forms.

 

There is a UserVoice item to advocate for this feature per Microsoft's responses in the links below.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!
