Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Using a rule to validate user input, part of SharePoint 2013: Customizing List Forms.
- We can easily add rules to manage our user input,…so that when a user provides us with information…that's not correct, we can catch them right here…while they're entering information in the form and say,…"Whoa, need to fix this before you can submit it."…An example is, that in our organization,…sometimes when people are asked for an email address,…they type an internal email address…that does not have the "at" symbol in it.…So, we're gonna add a rule that says,…"We need you to provide the whole email address, here."…I'm going to select that particular control,…and say, "if," and I'm using the "does not contain,"…because the rule is going to take effect…when this test is met:…if it's left blank, if it's equal to something specific,…not equal to, contains, or does not contain.…
I'm gonna say, if it doesn't contain something,…show a validation error.…And it says, if email does not contain the following -…and I'm simply going to type…the character that I'm looking for -…then show a validation error.…Okay.…So, here's my rule.…
