  • Hey Rahul, in general your questions will be easier for us to answer if you say HOW something is not working. You should try to be as specific as possible.

Usually validation rule gets triggered when the condition is true. For your case try using


No need for the NOT


ISBLANK( ManagerId) this is enough. The validation rule should fire only when the Manager field is blank or null.
