How to constrain users from selecting a ScheduledEndDate that is before the ScheduledStartDate on Change

Version 1


    You may want to prevent your end users from selecting an  end date that is less than the start date when creating a Change record. The steps below outline how to configure a validation rule that will not allow a save unless the EndDate is greater than the StartDate.
