    Submission approval: Pre-validate a form submission

    Asked by ggsstarvending on September 27, 2015 at 06:55 AM

    i want to make a type of false or true field.


    Make a field where a user enters their things like: name, address, phone, etc...

    the form checks on a list and if not in the list returns a error message or something.


    The data i use is to get work results from employees and i wanna make sure others are not just sending in data for these employees or something.


    I wanna pre valid all data before i receive it.


    Our list of employees is short less than 20 so making something i hope will be easy.
