Customisable pop-up messages to warn end users of bad input values
Description of the enhancement required:
Pop-up messages which can be customized to show error/ warning messages to end users
An example of the enhancement:
A user logs into Anaplan, goes to a dashboard and in one of the fields inputs a number. Based on a pre-defined rule, if the number that is input by the users goes beyond a specific value, then a warning message should appear
A story for why you want the enhancement:
In their capacity planning process, users work on the same set of data to make adjustments to system suggested supply plan. While making adjustments, if the user does allocation over or below the actual demand, then there should be an warning message given to the users. As of now, this is being managed through a line item which shows the error that the user has made.

Yes, rule based validation similiar to Excel Data Validation functionality. It would be helpful to be able to apply validations by cell, line item, list or property.
It will be great if we could enhance "Field" cards with additional settings like color coding to validate user entries.
Additionally it would be fantastic to allow customized error highlights that will help end user fix errors.
Current set up of fileds is quite limited with options:
Effectively would be great to customize fields behaviour as we see below:
Here we have color coding & error message which really help end user to adjust his entry.
Another idea is if we could put a reasonable limitation to the entry fields - like ranges for specific data types.
* Dates selection - Show only relevant time period to input date (current year only or not earlier 2000)
* Numbers - simply a range of number values ex. 0-99, or only round numbers 1,2,3 not "1.1578"
* Text input - english only w/o special characters.11
