Default Default email address

Below is a rule for returning a company formatted email address in lower case (as email addresses should be) so that a user does not have to enter the whole thing and possibly fubar the email address.

It searches the input for the "@" symbol which suggests that they want a different email address (i.e. like a sales person might have an alternate email address, etc.)

There are two variables that the rule uses. One is the actual email field. The second contains the company domain, you should change "testcompany.com" with your company domain.

Code:
emailField = ToLower(Field("email"));
cDomain = ToLower("@testcompany.com");

if (Field("email") != "") {
    if (Field("email").search("@") > -1)
        return emailField;
    else
        return emailField + cDomain;
} else {
    return "";
}

Default Re: Default email address

I have a basic email rule, that says if there's an entry in the email field then add on "@testcompany.com". If the email field is blank, do nothing.

I need to make it so that if someone enters a full email john@testcompany.com it strips out the @testcompany.com and uses the rule, because if people mess up and enter in more than their name, it will be john@testcompany.com@testcompany.com

thoughts?

Isn't that exactly what the rule in the original message in this thread does? That is, if I run cdaters's rule with the field value set to "john@testcompany.com", it returns exactly that, not "john@testcompany.com@testcompany.com". What are you doing differently?

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

The original posted rule does eliminate the chances of getting "joe@testcompany.com@testcompany.com", BUT for my company they want the domain to have caps in it so it's "@TestCompany.com" so if someone types "@testcompany.com" I want it to replace with "@TestCompany.com". So I always want to use the predetermined domain name, also in case of typos.

Okay, then just do a replace to change the string to whatever you want, like so:
Code:
 
var emailField = Field("email");
var cDomain = "@TestCompany.com";
if (!emailField)
  return "";
//else  
if (emailField.search("@") > -1)
    return emailField.replace(new RegExp(cDomain, "gi"), cDomain);
//else
return emailField + cDomain;

Well, I'm not sure you can "cleanse" every possible typo in user-entered data, but you can certainly change the capitalization, as above. Of course, domain names in web and email addresses are case-insensitive by definition, so it's merely an aesthetic change, as alluded to in the original post in this thread:

Given the aforementioned case-insensitive nature of domain names, I'm not sure I agree that addresses "should be" in lower case (at least not the domain name part). But, your requirements are clearly different from the original poster's, and they seem to be different from what you stated in your first post as well.
