What is the proposed idea/solution?

If an email field is set to required on a form, the form should not allow the user to submit unless there is a valid (properly formatted) email address entered into the field.

How does is solve the user problems?

It allows form users to fix issues before submitting a form with invalid data. It helps the form owner ensure that the incoming data is correct. It makes it more likely that the form owner will be able to contact form users and e.g. send confirmation emails.

How was this validated?

People are expressing their frustration about the lack of this issue on a number of different threads in the Airtable forums.

Who is the target audience?

People creating sign-up forms or any form where the form submitter might need to be contacted as a result of submitting their info.

Hello @Celeste_Bancos 

This is a common validation and basic functionality that most users need.

Most important is for now just apply this for the forms and then the required fields validation is also needed for all other fields on the "Data" side.
