Hi @FermínZ Hope you’re having a wonderful Monday! If you don’t have a lot of IDs, you could use logic jumps to check for certain ones. Otherwise, you could have the logic jump search for different characters using the ‘contains’ option like this:

  • 00000000-A
  • A00000000
  • A-00000000

How can I ask for that in the field “value here”? 

Thank you again!

Ohh, I see. I’m not sure if it’s possible to ask for a specific value ( @john.desborough may know), but you could have it look for the letters by using the ‘contains.’ In this case, you would enter the letter it should include where it says, “value here.”

@FermínZ @Liz - you can match to a specific value ie 00000000-A but it is NOT going to act as a validation mask ie the user can enter any code that is ‘nnnnnnnn-A’ where n = a number and A is a capital letter. 

for example it would find: contains  ‘’ in an email address field like 


I understand - thank you so much for your help!!
