Is it possible to filter out submissions from a form based on if the email field?


I am learning smartsheets and am unable to find a way to do this.

We have a form for one of our sheets so people can submit requests to my team. However, we want the requests to only come from our organization. The form obviously has an option to only allow submissions if they have a smartsheets login but that doesn't mean that the requestor is from our organization.

Is there a way to create a workflow that looks a new field on the form called "Submitter Email Address" (for example) and if the address doesn't end in, then it either doesn't post the request to our sheet or posts it somewhere else and sends them an email that says something like "Only internal people can submit using this form".

Is this kind of workflow possible? I'm not sure if this is possible or not. I've been poking around and haven't been able to find a way to complete this. Any help would be appreciated!
