I stumbled upon a strange issue and I can only guess at the reasoning, so I hope someone has a bit more insight on to the specifics of why.
I cannot get the validation rule to fire properly while I have the JS function in my form, but if I remove it, the rule fires as expected. I have tried doing a simple window.alert("Hello World!") function, and the rules fire just fine, so what am I missing?
Is this because I am attempting to update a field just before submit? Is this interfering with the normal validations?
I removed the field update and baked it into my workflow since it is a simple column update, but this has been nagging at me most of the week and I cannot get a good answer on why it is happening.
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Perhaps attach your form so I can help you take a look?
Should have looked here first!
I removed that line since I am doing this just before submit and there is no need to display the data to the user. We just need to update the list field.
