When a form is created in shared content and then used on Web pages, built-in features like validation can break.
Forms are normally built directly on a Web page and have built-in functionality, such as validation (e.g. 'required' or 'email address required').
When a form is built in Shared Content, and then displayed on a regular Web page, such as through a Shared Content Reference, these features can be affected. In this case, the normal validation is disrupted and users are allowed to not meet these requirements, with no error message being displayed.
There is no workaround and we strongly discourage building forms in Shared Content.
If you need have more complex needs for forms that are not well met by the UBCMS, please consider using Formstack (more details).
Requests submitted by the online forms will be triaged quickly by the UBCMS Help Desk.
Expect UBCMS outages Wednesday mornings from 4:30 to 6:30 during routine updates.
Also, consult the documentation provided by Adobe Day, the vendor of the UBCMS software.
Please note that some of the vendor instructions may not apply and some features may not be available, as the UBCMS has been modified to suit the needs of the UB community.
