Validations are data checks that can be added on a specific application page to prevent invalid/incorrect data being entered into the system. Various types of validations can be enforced on fields of any form in the application.
Common uses of Validations are:
- Maintain standards in the organization
- Improves data quality in the system
- Avoid inconsistent or incorrect data being fed into the system.
- Helps implement effective business rules in the organization.
The existence of a data validation on an application page is indicated by a small 'i' icon next to the input fields.
If a data check is applied on to a field, the data in it gets validated and the response is shown in the form of a Tick(✔) when the data is correct and a cross(X) if data entered is wrong along with a red border if required.
