Show Error (Validation Action)

Display a custom message to users if the data they entered does not meet the requirements.

Explanation

This action belongs in a validation procedure. It will stop the saving process and display an error message you specify. Note: you probably want to place this Action inside of an evaluation; compare your criteria against values in the User interface that are in the process of saving, and if the evaluation fails, this action will display your error message.

Settings

Error Message to Display

You can choose a field that contains the message you wish to display or enter text. Storing the error message in a field makes it easier to change the message later, as well as allowing end user in a testing or production environment to modify the message.

Describe this action

Useful as a comment, this description will overwrite the automatically generated description in the Action Manager.
