    Accepting serial numbers via web form

    Asked by coastsideservices on February 23, 2015 at 04:07 PM

    Say I use 14xxxxx as a data example...

    I have a form field requiring a serial number. I used 14xxxxx as an example default. I want to make sure the submitter actually inputs a serial, but not allow the default 14xxxxx to be submitted.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You might consider moving 'Default Value' serial number to Hint Example and Hover Text description.

    Also, it is possible to use conditional logic on form to "block" default serial numbers. Please see the following animation.

    If you need any further assistance on this, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
