Is there a way to restrict a date field?
So there is a table for Task Z. Dept. A creates new tasks, however, once created the second step in the process is done by Dept. B and there is a Due Date field to let Dept. B know when their step needs done. Dept. A has a habit of just putting today's day as Due Date. Dept. A has been told multiple times not to do this but still does it anyway. Is there a way to restrict that field so that Due Date cannot equal Today?
(I don't need or want it to auto calculate based on a set time frame, like today is 3/15 so the due date is automatically 3/16. The due date could be 3/16 or it could be 3/21 or it could be 4/28, as long as it is a least 1 day in the future so that Dept. B actually has time to work on it.)
Make a new formula numeric field called [Record ID# mirror] with a formula of
That will give us a hook we can use in a form rule to determine if the record has been saved yet.
Then make a formula like this.
When the record is saved
[Record ID# mirror] is (blank)
[Due date] is "the current date"
Abort the save with message.
Sorry, but you cannot inflict a date of Today as the Due Date for your co-workers. They need more time than that :)
That did it. Thank You!
