The Email Address field is used for entering a single email address and will only pass validation if the value entered is in a valid email format.
Standard field options
An Email Address field has the following standard options:
- CSS layout classes
- Default Value
- Placeholder Text
- Field description
- Field size
- Label position
- Field key
- Field type
Set a maximum character in a field to limit how many characters can be displayed.
Use the 'Require Confirmation' option to require a user to confirm that the information they entered in a field is correct. For more information see the Confirmation fields page.
This field setting allows you to set an autocomplete HTML attribute. It prompts the browser to attempt autocompletion based on the user's history. Read more about the Autocomplete attribute and how it works.
The options give context to autofill features in browsers. For example, choosing Email will set autocomplete="email" on your email fields. Note: The autocomplete attribute will be used in favor of an attribute found in custom HTML.
Default values and field icons
You may automatically populate an Email Address field with the current user's email by putting [email] in the field on the form builder page.
The default value icons can be used to specify whether the text entered in an Email Address field on the form builder page should be a default value or a placeholder. Learn how to set a default value and how to set a placeholder in a text field.
Field action icons allows you to duplicate, delete, and/or move a field on the form builder page. See the field action icons article for more information.
