What are validation rules?
Validation rules are records checks that help you prevent customers and admins from creating or editing a record if a condition isn't met.
For example, you want to make sure all customers have a VAT number on record. Another example would be preventing customers from booking a resource if they didn't purchase a specific product.
You can set up validation rules for the following record types:
- Product sales
- Proposal contracts
How validation rules work
Validation rules rely on a formula that assesses if a condition you define is met before creating or updating a record. The formula is simply what you tell Nexudus to check whenever a customer or an admin tries to edit a record.

We currently offer the following validation rules templates to create common validation rules in a few clicks.
