With Workstream, users can use a data validation tool to restrict the type of data or the values that applicants enter into the questionnaire. Through this, the applicant won't be able to submit the form if the answers provided do not match the condition that was set up.

The Workstream data validation tool can be added to a form stage and applies to the following types of questions:

1. Short Answer

Number – All characters in numerical form

Length – Minimum and maximum number of characters allowed

Regular Expression – To match a certain pattern in texts such as email address, name titles (Mister, Miss etc.), identifying duplicated words, etc. For more information, click here.

2. Paragraph Answer

Length – Minimum and maximum number of characters allowed in the paragraph

Regular Expression – To match a certain pattern in texts such as email address, name titles (Mister, Miss etc.), identifying duplicated words, etc. For more information, click here.

3. Date

Date – You can set based on a certain period of time

NOTE: To use the data validation tool, ensure that Data Validation is turned on when creating questions in a form stage.
