Number Field

Seems like there was a change today related to number fields. I have a number field in a currency format. In this instance it adds a $ sign into the field before the number. As of today I cannot submit forms with this field and get an error saying “Values entered in number and currency fields must be numeric”.

What happened?

I’m having the same problem. My users cannot edit a form unless they manually remove the $ in front of the number. Has this fix been rolled out to everyone?

Hi @Joshua,
Yesterday’s fix was for negative numbers - we’ve got a fix coming in the hour (or sooner) for the $ issue.
We’re so sorry this wasn’t caught!

@Joshua sorry - we are still working on the fix, it’s taking a bit longer :frowning:

All fixed now - thanks for your patience

I realise this is stating the obvious, but this highlights the risks you bear when rolling out unannounced changes universally without considering how your user base might be affected. The $ case and of course negative numbers are pretty obvious use cases that you should have considered and tested for. Had you maybe communicated your intent to update field validation a week or two AHEAD of doing so, you may have had the user base provide feedback before it broke their apps. Hopefully a learning experience for Knack developers.
