New functionality in Zoho Desk: Design rules and validation with Regex

Regular expressions (Regex) can now be implemented in design and validation rules. This new functionality allows you to create more flexible rules when designing and validating forms.

What is Regex?

Regex is a language that allows you to match and search text according to specific patterns, making it easy to create rules for input fields such as phone numbers and email addresses. This ensures accurate data collections, saving time and effort.

Benefits of using regular expressions

  • Increased efficiency: Allows you to search for specific patterns quickly.

  • Improved accuracy: Facilitates search specification, reducing errors.

  • High reusability: The patterns created can be used in different contexts.


Regex in design rules

By integrating Regex into design rules, patterns can be defined to format data correctly. This is useful to determine the behavior of the form according to the data entered, avoiding the creation of multiple criteria.

Regex in validation rules

Using Regex in validation allows you to verify that user entries match specific formats, rejecting those that do not conform. This ensures that only valid entries are accepted, preventing errors or security risks. A practical example is to validate e-mail formats by means of regular expressions.
