Real-time Validation and Validation Mode

Company > Blog > Real-time Validation and Validation Mode

Currently, users in SameGoal view document validation errors either by visiting the Check tab of each document or by following an error message received when attempting to mark a document with errors complete.

Beginning 02/10/2020, users will have the ability to both (a) see and resolve errors in real-time using real-time validation and (b) view and resolve all remaining errors quickly using validation mode.

Real-time validation

  • All required document fields will be marked with a red asterisk (*).
  • Any field that has a validation error will be marked with a red dot.
  • Hovering over the asterisk or dot will display the validation error message. These are the same error messages currently viewed from the Check tab.
  • Once each issue is resolved, the asterisk or red dot will disappear.

Validation mode

  • Users will be able to enter validation mode by clicking the validation mode icon (check mark in a circle) in the toolbar. When the icon is clicked, it will become highlighted and a left and right arrow will appear. These arrows will allow users to go to the previous and next errors respectively.
  • Validation mode allows users a faster way to visit and resolve all remaining errors in a document. The current error under review at any given time is marked with a red box.
  • Once an error has been resolved, the red box and asterisk/dot will disappear. The user can then use the arrows at the top to advance to the next error.
  • Validation errors appear in sequence if there are multiple errors for a field. For example, a required missing date marked with an asterisk will become a dot if the date was invalid.
  • When the user has resolved all validation errors, a message will display.
  • Validation mode replaces the “Check” tab going forward.

This update will be included for all districts; no additional action is required on your part.
