Adding an Input Mask

The following section describes how to add an Input Mask to a Text field to constrain what users type in a field when adding Records. It can be used to make sure that users enter certain digits or letters. This can be useful if you have a field with administrative codes, for example. As users type in the field that has an Input Mask, the data entered will automatically get validated and the field will turn red if the data entered do not match the Input Mask and green when they do.

Take a look at the available characters and their explanations before creating an Input Mask.
