Condition To Years-in-date

​The Year-In-Date Condition can ensure that only the correct date information is entered by end users using Document Editor. Its wide range of settings allow it to set conditions for dates in formats that are purely numerical, or those that include text.

The Year-In-Date Condition settings are as follows:

Numeric

  • “=” – equal to
  • “!=” – not equal to
  • “>” – greater than
  • “≥” – greater than or equal to
  • “<” – less than
  • “≤” – less than or equal to

Text

  • “is empty”, meaning that the Year-In-Date field has been left blank.
  • “is not empty, meaning that the Year-In-Date field has been filled.

Generic (beta version)

  • is visible, meaning the condition will activate if a certain Year-In-Date is made visible.
  • is not visible, meaning the condition will activate if a certain Year-In-Date is not made visible.

All of the above settings are the second to last dropdown selection in the Conditions Phrase, and once selected, the template designer will be prompted to choose a Year-In-Date Value.
