    Hi Alexander,

    You can use calculation fields to do some custom validation: https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/articles/201019358-Calculations

    This won't reject the values, but you can show the item is invalid in that field.

    Best,
    Andreas

    @Andreas: Thanks for the hint. As far as I have seen I can use Javascript. Do you know if there are some limitations? Jqeury? Can I also use PHP.

    I was thinking about "blocking" the submit button, if it is not correct.

    The calculation field is basically a Javascript program which will be run when the dependencies of the field are changed. The value returned by the program will be stored as the value of the field. You can use this value to show whether the item is considered valid or not, but you won't be able to disable the submit button.

    If you want to skip the hassle of programming your validations, you can simply configure them using https://vali-pod.io!

    Behind the scenes, this automatically creates and configures such a calculation field. Your benefit: It is really easy to configure and you won't spend time debugging your code ;-) Also this has additional features, such as validations depending on attachments/files, that are not easily done with a calculation field alone.
