    That's possible. You just have to create a show condition that shows a certain text e.g. a warning message whenever that field's value matches.

    Here's how:

    1. First, add a text or a warning message in your form using the Text tool.

    2. Create a Show/Hide condition like the following:

    As a result:

    You can also add another DO action like hiding the submit button so they can't submit the form until they corrected the error.

    Hope this helps!
