Hi everyone,

I want my workflow should through a warning if a user input numeric value in name and string value in phone number and a submit $ cancel button at the end. I want to do this using macros, how should I do this? For example

First name             123(warning)

Phone no               abc(warning)

           submit     cancel

Hi @Arpita23 ,


What tools are you using to allow the user to input values for name and phone number?

I am new to macros so I wanted to create it using macros, list box like something or any interface tools?

Hi @Arpita23 ,


I've mocked up a macro that allows the user to input their Name and their phone number and will throw and error if either of them contains the wrong characters

The whole magic happens within those error message tools connected to each interface tool; if something does not match the given patter, the macro will error.


Hope that helps,
