UI Rule: user message when value changes

Greetings all,

Has anyone a solution for SP 18 allowing you to configure a UI rule that is triggered only by a value change which has user message as the action?

We know how to do this using a VB Script, but we would prefer to do it using only OVSD internals.

NB: The old trick that we used in SP 8 to first set up the action with a trigger "before save", and then changing the trigger to "on value change" does not work in SP18.

Thanks,
Josh

Re: UI Rule: user message when value changes

If there is a way that works on SP18/SP19 I would love to hear it.

Honestly, sometimes I don't know what on earth have the engineers of HP thinking. The excuse of why user notification message is blocked on field change is pretty lame.

The concept of notification message is pretty useless if you don't allow messages to be presented on field change.

Do you Read HP? Notification messages are more usefull well you notify IMMEDIATELY on user error than waiting to fill 50 fields and popup en error message after trying to save the item. This confuses users and all users are NOT technical people.

re: The old trick doesn't work in SP18.

Does this mean that it doesn't work in SD5.x?? We rely on this workaround. We need a big Service Desk client to log an enhancement request.

Hello David,

In SD5 you don't have to do any tricks. The user notification messages in ui rules work in every ui condition.

Re: UI Rule: user message when value changes

Josh,

Have you tried this. Create the UI rule with the trigger "When a record is saved". Create the notification message and then save the UI rule. Then edit it and change the trigger to "When a value has changed" and then go into the conditions and turn on "Evaluate when this field changes". It has worked upto SP17 - does this not work on 18.
