Limit entry to once a week per person

Hi there,

Have thus far created a fairly simple weekly check-in application (form) for my department, with status on work/life balance metrics. All of the data is stored in a simple SharePoint list.


Now I want to ensure that employees can only create 1 entry per week.


The tricky part here is, that I want to allow other employees to do check-ins on their behalf, and then I am routing this via an approval flow to approve / decline.


How do I create a mechanism that checks whether there has already been a check-in on a specific employee, so I only have 1 entry per employee, per week?

I am  a big supporter of not just giving a mindless screen or a mindless error.


I think I would setup a Gallery on the form that looks at the source table or list and test against created date and if it is (168 hours from now 7 day week) or (120Hours in a 5 day work week) display it in the gallery so the user knows they have already submitted. Then in the form on the same screen can display the information from the gallery in view. if Gallery is empty then form in new action.


There are a million ways to do this type of stuff but this is my thought.
