I have a canvas app with a text field for a user to enter their personal email address.

Is there a way I can throw an error if they didn't enter in the correct format?

Try to force them to use correct email format?

For example, a user enters Cshoemaker24 (rather than [email protected]).

You can use IsMatch function in Power Apps for email validation on the text input field.


You can use formula like below on your "Submit" button control which submits the form:

    IsMatch(DataCardValue1.Text, Match.Email ),
    Notify("Please enter valid email address", NotificationType.Error)

Where DataCardValue1 is the name of text input field.
