exclude non university email domains from purchase requests
Purchase requests can now be made from any email address. We would like to exclude (requests from) email addresses that are not within our university email domains, in other words only allowing requests from users who have a university email address.
Thank you for your feedback on this potential enhancement. We will evaluate this idea. In the meantime, please continue to provide more feedback and we welcome your votes! We will keep the status of the project updated here. We appreciate your engagement.

You can currently add an optional (or mandatory) field to the request form within the custom text settings. We ask for their University ID number which allows us to look them up on the LMS.

If this is acted upon, please make it an option, since not all schools host email accounts for students. Outs doesn't, so this would make it very difficult for our students to make a purchase request.

This is a good idea - but I think it needs to be optional. For instance, we have students on short courses who aren't given a university email address, but we still want to receive their requests. So we'd opt to keep things as they are.
