    Restricting Number Values That Can Be Entered into a Field

    Asked by dlasson on September 10, 2015 at 10:27 AM

    Hi.

    Is it possible, through a condition, to limit a value that is to be entered into a field by a set increment? For example, only increments of $5000 are allowed. So if the user entered $7000, an error message would appear.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    There is not currently a way to allow only increments of a certain number to be entered in the number field.  For this, I would recommend using a dropdown field to allow for the selection of number, rather than the entry of number.  This would allow you to control which numbers they can select from.  Unless you have a rather large range, this is likely your best bet to restrict your users to incremental values.
