Warning messages

Customization & App Building

Display a pop-up warning message on record save when a certain condition is met. The warning should offer the options 'Continue with Save' or 'Cancel Save'.

This functionality differs from Validation rules in that the save is allowed to occur, providing confirmation has been provided by the user.

This enables key data changes - such as those that might kick off workflow rules for example - to be double-checked.

    Thanks for your feedback. Being able to configure warning only validation rules would be a great addition to the platform. Data commit and validation is a core piece in the platform that we have to design and update carefully as to not run into trust and data integrity issues. In addition, we need to ensure how conditions are defined and executed isn't too confusing, especially when dealing with multiple conditions. This is definitely a big ticket item and we are keeping an eye on it though it is not on the short term roadmap.
