Picking up possible email typos in emails

Mail checkAs you know we do not require email confirmation on Sign Up in Freedcamp. This to ensure that you can start working with the system straight away. It was important for us to make sure that you typed emails correctly. We searched and found Mailcheck library created by Kicksend, @derrickko.

Last release we added email typo spot checks to Invite People page. It is not perfect, as you can see on a screenshot, but at least it will draw your attention to potential errors in emails you typed and all your invites will get their email hassle free.

While researching this topic we also found Mailgun’s free email validation API. I know there are software developers following our blog who might be interested to hear about other options to validate a bit more just email’s syntax.

    Can you export one master time sheet that includes all projects or does this have to be done on a per project basis?

    If as one master time sheet, do we need to buy any additional features like the invoices widget?

    thanks

      Hi Chris,

      You can export time entries inside Time Tracking application per project
      We will be adding ability to export from Widgets – so if you create a Time widget and select ‘all projects’ you will be able to export all time entries from all projects you have access to.

      Cheers,
      Igor

    Random tidbit of knowledge: A lot of people don’t realize that the + character is a valid character in an email address. It is and faulty email validation blocks it. It’s good to hear you are only offering suggestions and not blocking valid e-mail addresses like myemailaddress+tag@domain.com

      Hi Tom,

      Yes – it is not perfect but it is open source library we can improve. No blocking for sure.
