Validation on custom task form after task acceptance

Good day all, thanks so much for taking a look here.

Here's the scenario:

We have a script from Project VBA that scrapes task information and generates Outlook Tasks with various metadata into a custom Task form. Part of the requirement is that after the task is accepted by the resource, an ACTUAL WORK field in the form must be populated.

So far all attempts at validation are just a bit 'off' as the recipient receives the post-validation warning upon initial reception of the task. We would like to limit this to post-task acceptance in an effort to stop tasks from being marked completed without their actual durations, as an event handler will then update the project schedule with task completion information.

Not sure if we can isolate the validation to this stage, so any guidance is appreciated.

Thanks for reading, all suggestions welcome!!!
