Help! Validation for Choice Column

Hi Everyone,


Please could someone help me with a solution (and be descriptive on how to overcome this as im still new)


I have a Choice field for the Status of a task e.g. Started, In Progress, In Review, Completed Cancelled etc. I have built my list in Power Forms.


I want the choice field to NOT ALLOW the user to select a status if previous ones have not been completed e.g. CANNOT go to in review without started and in progress being completed first.


Please could someone explain to me the best way to put some sort of validation onto my SharePoint Form, or a way of hiding the selections based on what has previously been selected.

You'll probably want to customize the SharePoint forms using PowerApps.  You can build your business logic into the customized form.
