When You Receive "Cannot save the record because of error(s) in the following input data." Message
If there is any problem (required data not entered, etc.) when saving records, you receive "Cannot save the record because of error(s) in the following input data." message.
The name of the problematic field that needs to be fixed is displayed under the error message.
Checking the Error Details Displayed Under the Specified Field
Check the error details displayed under the specified field, and change the data concerned.
For information on errors displayed, see the "Solution for Each Error" section.
If "Cannot display the item name" is included in the error message, the user might not have view permission for that field.
To solve the problem, the user needs to ask the app administrator to check app settings.
For troubleshooting details, see the "Unable to Save Records with "(Cannot display the item name)" Error (For App Administrators)" page.
If You Cannot Locate the Field Specified in the Error Message
If the field name specified in the error message is not displayed in the screen to enter a record, that field name might be hidden. In the record entry screen, find the field below which the error message is displayed, and change the value.
If you cannot find the relevant field in the record entry screen, that field may temporarily be hidden as a result of the customization of API or plugin.
Ask the app administrator whether there is any problem due to customization or plugin settings.
Note that even when any filed name is hidden on the form, that field name is displayed in the error message or filter settings. Therefore, you should set an easily understandable field name.
