I'm trying to create a validation rule that will prevent a user from selecting an option in a dropdown on an Account field if none of the related contacts have a field marked true.
Account field = "Ready for handoff" is a picklist with two yes options (one requiring further work and the other doesn't) let's call them Yes1 and Yes2, and one no option.
Contact field = "Used for outreach" is a boolean checkbox.
I want the validation rule to trigger if the user selects Yes1 in the account field and none of the related contacts have the checkbox checked. If at least one of the contacts have that checkbox checked, then the Yes1 option can be selected. Yes2 and No can be selected without this contact field needing to be filled out.
I've built a contact validation rule relating back to the account field, but don't see the option to build an account validation rule that relates to the contact object.
I'm struggling to relate the validation rule to related contacts since the account is the parent to the contact. Is this even possible?
