I am looking for a way to skip validation on a field. Currently i have a form in which we have required fields. However salesforce prioritizes Front end validation errors, and thus validation rules don't occur at all. The problem is i have a datefield that requires alteration of some other fields for months. The date field will just increment the date using the months. However what happens is Invalid Date occurs, and i made the datefield read only.
Is there anyway to fix my validation problem or am i forced to back end triggers for everything?
