Add validation to email address field to prevent saving of whitespace

started a topic about 4 years ago

Quite often I'm copying and pasting email addresses into DEAR and they get added to DEAR with a space either before or after the email address. This is a pain because there are no errors thrown until I sync the data to Quickbooks and Quickbooks returns errors.

Ideally DEAR would do some validation at the time of data entry:

1) Automatically trim whitespace off an email address, or

2) Validate the email address format and give an error if there's whitespace present

The DEAR user interface makes it very difficult to tell if there's extra whitespace in a text box because of the padding you use in the HTML controls, so some extra validation here would save me from having to update customer and order records in order to fix Quickbooks sync errors.


  • This would be great! For us it's not so much the issue with a space, but we are also having issues with email address' syncing to our accounting system in Xero due to validation issues. So it would be great if this step was first taken in DEAR.
