Today many validations result in an error message. The error message needs to be clicked away, then the record needs to be reopened and the field can be entered or corrected before you can try another Save. How great would it be when the future app (FSA?) would just provide the field(s) that need to be entered or corrected without the need for all previous steps? So instead of saying: "Please enter all required fields, OK" just say: "Please enter field x: _____________ , OK" and when there are more fields involved show the others in sequence or below each other, where applicable with the related error message (e.g. show both time stamps and the error for "Job Close can only come after Dispatch Time" and give the user the option to change either or both).
Just curious if other companies would also think this idea would greatly improve the user experience of the app and make the Technicians much more productive and efficient (and happy )
