Can we overwrite "Input validation" used in multiple fields in a FORM through some single liner code/

"Input validation" has formula present for multiple fields in a FORM.

All these formulas get triggered before document could be saved. This is working as designed.

Can we prevent all these formula from being executed through some one liner code or conditional expression so that all these checks can be prevented.

    I for myself build in an external „control“ in all of my validation fields: I do something like

    @If(!@IsDocBeingSaved | DoNotEvaluate = "1"; @Return( @Success ) ; "")

    as the very first line of my validation formula.

    like that I can easily stop all validations by setting the -computed for display- field „DoNotEvaluate“ to „1“ if I want to save without validation...

    in more complex forms I make the field multi value und put the sections in there, that do not have to validate at that moment.. the DoNotValidate field then has values like "Section 1" : "Section 3", and the validation formula asks for its own section instead of „1“. Of course there is an "all" value to save a draft... the first line of the validation formula then looks like

    @If(!@IsDocBeingSaved | DoNotEvaluate *= "Section 1" : "All"; @Return( @Success ) ; "")

    This is a request to be able to do a temporary save.
