A lot of our more complicated data entry screens include an error/warning tab. Final submission of data cannot occur until all errors are resolved and warnings acknowledged. Data can be saved as “Draft” with errors at any time. This allows support and/or devs to retrieve the draft and see what is going on without total frustration by the users.

Think about how a good IDE informs you of errors, but does not stop you from working.
