Data validation

When creating new items, customers and suppliers, it is important that fields such as booking groups, valuation method and payment conditions are correctly filled in. Self-managing master data can be very time consuming, but for a correct processing of (internal) orders it is important that the master data is correct.

With the module Mandatory Fields the quality of your internal information processing will be enhanced. You can determine for each table which requirements the value of the field must meet. Depending on the setting, the user will receive a warning or an error.
