Hello everyone,

I would like to ask if is possible to restrict the creation of appointments with past dates, that is, set an alert or error message or that does not allow to record appointments with dates passed.

Currently, the system allows creating appointments in the past which does not make much sense at the user level.

I hope you can help me
Thank you!

Hello Oriana,

This is not a standard requirement since most users expect the ability to enter past dated activities, especially for activities that are being logged after they are completed.

In your scenario, it would be useful for you to consider defining a pre-save validation using the Cloud Application Studio. In this validation logic you can prevent the save of an activity with start date earlier than your current date.

Hope this answer your question ,do set the post as answered.

Thanks and Regards,

Ankush Pashine.

Hi Ankush!

Thank you very much for your answer

¿What do I need to use pre validation through cloud application studio?

In fact for our scenario, we do not agree that in particular the sales team can create activities with previous dates. We do not want our team to register activities after they are done, we want the tool to be useful for planning.
