What kind of errors can prevent the saving of a wizard | CRM FAQs

What kind of errors can prevent a wizard from saving?

There are a range of errors that you might come across while saving a wizard. For example:
  1. Orphan screens: If a screen is not connected with another screen.
  2. Save button not valid: If the save button on a screen is available before all the system mandatory fields are added.
  3. Invalid buttons: If the button is not configured to the save action or not linked to another screen before you save the wizard.
  4. No option to save: If a screen doesn’t have a save button.
  5. Looping is not allowed: If the screens are connected so that the wizard starts and ends with the same screen. For example, if you have connected screen 1 > screen 2 > screen 3 > screen 1, this will cause an error because the path starts and ends with the same screen (screen 1). 
  6. Save button missing: If save button is not configured before you save the wizard.
  7. Empty wizard: If no screens have been added to the wizard.
  8. Duplicate name: If the wizard name already exists.
  9. Mandatory fields are missing: If the screen does not contain all the mandatory fields.
  10. Node has no save or transition: If there is no save button or path from the screen.
  11. Field [field name] is repeated: If a field is repeated on more than one screen so that the record creator will come across the same field twice in a path. For example, if the wizard path is screen 1 > screen 2 > screen 3 > screen 4, and a field appears on screens 2 and 4 then field repeat error will be displayed.
