    In Classic, we were able to force registrants to enter their email address twice. We did that because they would mis-type their email address and then we had no way of contacting them. Is this going to be an option with Flex. We found it very helpful and eliminated a lot of headaches when we had no way of contacting a registrant.

    Seconded! This is a very useful feature in Classic that helped to reduce the number of mistyped email addresses, which not only ensures we have an active email address on file, but prevents duplicate accounts from being inadvertently created in Contacts. It's also a pretty basic security feature to help avoid personal registration information being sent to the wrong person due to a misspelled email.

    Hi Linda and Sarah,

    Thank you for your feedback! I connected with one of our Flex Product Managers who confirmed this is on the roadmap for later in the year. In the meantime, there is an existing idea from one of your peers that you can upvote to increase visibility for our product team.

    Please let me know any questions!
