Checking for duplicates during data entry

Hello there, i have been trying to know if there is a mechanism to check for already entered data from webforms or Kobocollect. An example is entering serial numbers, say “VNDRGT05T”, in first entry, is there a way it will pope up in the second entry that the serial number “VNDRGT05T” is already entered? and so will tell me that its already existing?

Welcome @lacaselaprofe,

  • Do you mean in the same form or in different form cases/submissions, please?
  • Do you mean check against the last saved form on the same device or any submitted form case on server level?
