Custom fields - Validation of entered values

Description - Any validation possibilites for entered values into custom fields would be great.

 

Why is this feature important to you - At the moment there is no possibility to validate any entered values into fields. We cannot validate, if e.g. a valid email address, or url was entered, also for date fields it is not possible to define, e.g. that the allowed choices have to be after a specific date,...

 

How would you like the feature to work - RegEx would be fine

 

Current Behaviour - no validation

@jon_chen Field validation has been on my wish list for years. It actually has a lot more traction and interest than is apparent. There are numerous "ideas" that would be solved by field validation that are separate and individual idea requests, each having only a handful of "likes". If they were aggregated together (as they should be), they would have quite a few "likes". Every coding and scripting language out there that engages forms has some form of validation, except Workfront's.

Here are some recent examples, and there are MANY more (Search "field validation"):

Hi @RandyRoberts Thanks for your message. I've merged the most popular ideas into this one since it is the most recently published idea.

@lgaertner Thank you for the submission! We think this is a good enhancement to the Workfront platform overall and this product area in particular!   Workfront currently prioritizes large-scale, foundational enhancements such as the new Reporting experience and changes to the core data model, so this item does not fit in our near-term roadmap. As such, I am marking this as Declined now, but we'll keep this in our backlog for the improvements for this area so that we can revisit the decision in the future. 

Status changed to: Declined

@Vazgen_Babayan Is there a plan to get some sort of validation into the new reporting Canvas? I get that no one wants to add enhancements to the current reporting model if it's not going to be the future reporting platform, but validation is an essential tool for business in general. Every major "forms" platform out there has some sort of validation, except Workfront. IMO, this is a glaring ommission.
