    Hi Leonardu,

    It should be preventing the user from saving the record (not showing this). It could be throwing this error for other reasons (like previously created records before you changed that).

    You could look under the hood and change that. Not reccomended in most situations since you could make things worst.

    If you click on Details, you should be able to download the error and in that it would show the process/plugin that is validating that.

    Hope this helps,

    Juan Simon

    Hi Leonardu,

    You can by using a Business Rule inside the Time Entry table in your Power Apps solution. 

    Please, mark this as answered!
