We are setting up a form that will be filled out by campus staff at many different colleges/universities, so there is no one @ domain. We want to ensure that no one submits a non-campus email address, however, so we want to make sure that regardless of the rest of the domain, it ends in .edu. Is there a way to do that ? They won't be logging in or anything, I just need the form to reject anything that ends in .com, etc.

This is not available in Airtable, but this is possible with Fillout’s advanced forms for Airtable. You can validate an email address by condition or by using a RegEx expression or even by requiring a login to certain domains that you specify!

Fillout is 100% free and offers hundreds of features that Airtable’s native forms don’t offer, including the ability to update Airtable records from a form, display Airtable lookup fields & Airtable rollup fields & Airtable attachments & formulas on forms, dynamically & conditionally filter linked record fields by any values that you would like, perform math or other live calculations on your forms, accept payments on forms, create multi-page forms with conditional paths, create new linked records on a form, display as many fields as you want to see in a linked record selection list (including attachments), connect a single form to dozens of external apps simultaneously, limit the number of linked records that can be chosen, upload an unlimited amount of attachments simultaneously, add CAPTCHAs to your form, add choice matrixes to your forms, direct integration with hundreds of apps like Calendly & Google Maps on your forms, and so much more.

Hope this helps! If you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you with anything Airtable-related, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consultant — ScottWorld

Hmm, there's no native functionality for this I'm afraid.  As a workaround, what if we used the conditional visibility of the fields to prevent users from proceeding unless the email field contained ".edu"?
