Document Validation

Support > Online Guides > Administrative Guide > Document Validation

Document validation rules may be configured for forms throughout SameGoal. These rules help document authors to easily catch missing and inconsistent information as documents are authored, and increase compliance.

If validation rules apply to a document:

All administrative users will have the ability to override this warning and complete documents with errors on a document-by-document basis as needed after entering a reason.

Additionally, administrative users may enable a district-level setting to allow non-administrative users to complete documents with errors on a document-by-document basis.

When the district-level setting is enabled, an additional button will appear in the dialogue box for non-administrative users which states "Mark complete with errors" along with a request for the reason the document with unresolved validation errors needs to be marked as complete.

To enable the non-administrative user override feature:

  1. Visit Settings > District information > Details.
  2. Check the Allow non-administrative override box. The new setting will be autosaved.
  3. Users must refresh the application by reloading the page (CTRL + r on Windows or ⌘-r on Mac), or logout and re-login for the update to take effect.

lightbulb Tip
Document validation rules include checks for compliance, completeness and consistency. When a document is completed with errors, this document may not appear in district administrative reports or state reporting extracts. While completing a document with errors may be required in exceptional cases, we encourage districts to complete documents with errors thoughtfully and sparingly.
