Disable form submission while form rules are still running
When dealing with a complex form, rules take a considerable amount of time to run and complete. Then when a form gets opened, an action is made and a form is saved/submitted again and all of that is done in a short time - rules will not finish, resulting in a broken form (e.g. fields not set correctly etc.) See two examples below that are a cause of a submit/save button not being disabled when the form is processing data.
- With a new List item being created, if the OK button is clicked more than once then it will result in a duplication or triplication of the new item. Each of the duplicates / triplicates will have the same date and time created.
- When an existing List item is modified and the OK button is click to save when the Rules are still running, the rules will not complete. Only the modification made by the user will be saved, not including any changes that should be made by running Rules.
Thanks for your suggestion.
I will update this idea if there are any updates to share.
