Is there a way to have a single user override all rules on a form?

Jump to solution

I have a rule where users cannot select the current month, only previous months.

Is there a rule where I can have a single user "John" to be able to override those rules to submit a form in the current month?

Thanks in advance.

@SpenSouv .....add John into a SharePoint group. Apply a formatting rule on that current month control:

 

!fn-IsMemberOfGroup('John'sSPGroup') then disable the current month control.

Hey Kunal,

What if its a rule on a calculated field? Is it possible to place a rule on a rule?
Currently on the calc field:
choiceServiceMonth >= 1*formatDate(Current Date, "MM")

I tried to place the rule you provided into the calculated field under the Current date rule, but did not work.
!fn-IsMemberOfGroup(GroupName)

What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for your help!

@SpenSouv ......you can apply multiple rules on a control. But could you please let me know what you're trying to achieve in below mentioned rule? and why to multiply anything with "1"?

Forgive me as I'm still new to this.
Its a rule I copied from another post that helped to create a rule where if the calculated month = to current month or later, then the rule will validate an error.
Im not sure what the multiplication of 1 is for to be honest.

@SpenSouv ....you need to create 2 different rules:

 

  1. Formatting Rule: Use my formula and add the SharePoint group name in which you've added John. Make sure you select Disable
  2. Validation Rule: Use your rule and remove "1*" and make sure from the dropdown you select validation and type the message you want to display

You can apply multiple rules on a single control
