    Hello all,

    I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to use LPL to trim spaces out of a form field, or if LPL has some kind of an equivalent to regex functions to alter text in the form field.

    Our issue is that applicants will put spaces in their name before or after.. and sometimes even in the middle... and no fields trim these spaces by default. Then when they go through the application process it can be nearly impossible to find them in candidate pool due to the strange way it searches for names, and we need to manually trim the spaces when they go through the hire process before they're created as a resource.

    We've implemented a javascript fix to take care of this for applicants coming in through the external candidate site, but I would like to know if there's something I can do within the system.


    Thanks,
    Peter
