Intercepting SharePoint error messages

Hello,

         When i have fields in my SharePoint list that enforce unique values in my PowerApps and i try to submit, i get a red bar across the top of the page showing a long error message. The error message says in so many words that it cannot submit because of a duplicate value. 

Does anyone know of a way to intercept those error messages to write them a little clearer for the end user. Something like "Cannot submit form due to a Duplicate value in {Insert field name here} "

Hi @stephenJames ,

The easiest way would be to intercept the submission by doing a lookup first

If(
   CountRows(
      Filter(
         YourListName,
         YourFieldName=YourControlName.Whatever
      )
   )>0,
   Notify("Field xxxx must have unique values",Error),
   SumbitForm(FormName)
)
