  • 1.  Can we customize error message in QuickBase?

    Posted 15 days ago
    Hi Team,

    We've some checkboxes as required on the form.

    If user doesn't select any checkbox then it shows 1st checkbox field name in the error message.

    Is there any way we can update the error message?

    No, you cannot change that behavior.  It will tell the user the "next" Required field which is empty, not all the fields that are required but empty.

    You can use custom rules to give exactly the error message you want.

    if your checkboxes files are A,B &C 

    you can do a formula D

    if([A]="False" and [B]="False" and C="False", "You need to select at least 1 checkbox","OK")

    In custom rules you can then write
    if([D]<>"OK",[D])
