Application logic, including hard and soft fails, ensure applicants enter all necessary data prior to submitting an application.

Use Suitcase to import the examples in this article (and others in this section) into your institution's database. These examples are also featured in the Clean Slate Showcase environment.

Using Testing Queries
Before you commit to using the application logic records, try a testing query by importing the Suitcase link in the second tab. These queries recreate the application logic records, taking advantage of the Query Builder's Preview Results function to ensure the records that should be receiving the hard or soft fails appear. If you only use the application logic records, you'll only see the number of records affected.
