    Location of Unique Check error message

    Asked by HRCfamily on June 10, 2013 at 02:08 PM

    Is there anyway to move the "submission error" message to the first page of the form not the end if the error is due to a duplicate field completed on the first page of a multi-page form? This way the clients will not have to complete the entire form before they revieve the error. Thanks!


    Here's the form

    Unfortunately, it is not possible with the current setup. We compare the duplicated values through the database check upon submission, and the Next/Back page moves are not considered as submissions.

    If you would like to have real time checking for the Unique Question option, please let us know, so we will add a feature request to our system.

    Thank you.
