Data Validations

Any data validations you set up are available to all forms within the FormFlow instance.

Data validations ensure the form users enter information correctly. You can use Jenzabar-provided validations or create your own. Data validations are not limited to one form. They can be reused as needed.

There are two types of validations:

·       Standard input validation verifies what the user enters and lets them know if it is valid or not. Users cannot save until they've met the required format, but they can update their response before they submit the form. For example, you can use an input validation and mask on a social security number question to ensure the correct format is entered.
