Custom Validation and Overrides

Within DGIS you have the option of creating your own custom validation rules for shipping at your company. Rules can be created that will further restrict what a company allows their users to ship. A custom validation rule can be entered as a Warning or as an Error. 

You also have the option of creating Custom Overrides. Custom overrides can be created to override certain restrictions in the regulations. 

 

 

Custom Validation

Custom rules can be managed via Administration > Custom Validation.

Creating New Rules

To create a new Custom Validation rule, click the New button in the top right hand corner. 

Give the rule a name in the Rule Name field, and add text to the Error or Warning text field. This text will be visible to the user when the rule applies, so it is helpful to convey a clear message.

Next, select whether the Rule should be a Warning or an Error. If it is a warning, the program will give the user the warning when completing the shipment, but it will not stop them from completing the shipment. An error stops the user from completing the shipment until the error is corrected

Finally enter any/all of the restrictions you want to include in the Rule and select Save in the top right hand corner to save and activate the Rule.

Editing Existing Rules

To edit an existing Custom Validation rule, select the rule from the drop-down list titled "Select existing rule to edit it below." The criteria for that rule will open on the screen. You can edit any of the criteria fields, then click the Save at the top right of the screen to save any changes to that rule.

Deleting Rules

To delete an existing Custom Validation rule, select the rule from the drop-down list titled "Select existing rule to edit it below." Click the Delete button on the top right of the screen, and that rule will be deleted from the program.

 

Custom Overrides

Custom overrides can be managed via Administration > Custom Override.

Creating New Overrides

To create a new Custom Override, click on New in the top right hand corner. You can then give the new Override a Name and Description. Regulation, Form Type, Carrier, Transport Mode, and/or packing group can also be chosen for the UNID you select. The UNID is the only criteria that is required to trigger the override.

Editing Existing Overrides

To edit an existing Custom Override rule, select the rule from the drop-down list titled "Select existing rule to edit it below." The criteria for that rule will open on the screen. You can edit any of the criteria fields, then click the Save button at the top right of the screen to save any changes to that rule.
