Notify user which field is changed and unsaved

Hi,

 

I have a number of forms with numerous amounts of fields and as a reminder I have a pop up if something is changed and not saved. This works well!

 

My issue is that it possible (dammm testers) that someone could accidently change a drop down or test field and force the unsaved form check.

 

Is there a simple option to mark which field has been changed, maybe a red boarder? If it was by mistake and not known then it let the user know which field to correct.

 

Cheers, 

N

Yes, it involves changing the property of the datacard (whichever one you want - border, fill, etc) to a formula.

The one I often use is If(Self.Default <> Self.Update, Red, Transparent)

This works great for simple column types.  You need to alter differently for complex types.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

As you say nice, quick and easy for simple columns...now to work through the combox box and user lookups.

 

Many thanks,

Yeah...you have to get more specific with the formulas for those:

ex.  If(ThisItem.ChoiceColumn.Value <> dropDownOrComboBox.Selected.Value, Red, TransparentOrOther)
