Activity - Flowchart:
A web form prompts a user to enter their email address
The validation rules check if the address has an @ symbol in it
If it doesn’t, an error message is displayed, the text box is cleared and the system asks the user to enter the email address again
This continues until an appropriate address is entered.
The system then checks that the email address has been typed in lowercase, if not it converts it to lowercase
Once the email address is ok it is stored in the customer database
