FileMaker Basics Lesson 28: Say No to Field Validation

This is the twenty-eighth video in our FileMaker Basics series, which covers topics for beginning-level developers. We believe that best practices don’t only tell developers what to do, but also what not to do. This video explains why field validation, a default feature, can cause great problems for users, and how to make sure that this doesn’t happen in your database.

Tune in next Friday, when we’ll release our twenty-ninth video. If you have questions, or if there is a FileMaker topic you would like us to cover, please leave us a note in the comments section! We would love to know whether or not you like to leave the field validation checkboxes checked or unchecked, and why. Happy developing!
