    Hi three

    Anyone found a way to compare two people picker fields? A scenario is an Owner and an Approver pair of fields cannot be the same user. I want to be able to alert the current user to make a change.

    Any ideas?

    You can add this snippet to your Custom JS to have a check when saving the form:

    function dffs_PreSaveAction(){
        var pp1 = getFieldValue("PeoplePicker1");   
        var pp2 = getFieldValue("PeoplePicker2");
        if(String(pp1) === String(pp2)){
                "msg":"You cannot use the same person as Owner and Approver"
            return false;
