Making fields mandatory

Mandatory fields require the user to enter a non-empty value in order to accept user input. You can make both system and user-defined fields mandatory.

To make a field mandatory:

  1. Go to Customization > General > Fields > [Object Class].

  2. Double-click the field you want to make mandatory. The Field Properties (for a system field) or User Defined Field (for a user-defined field) window appears.

  3. Under Options, select the Mandatory check box.

  4. Click OK.

  5. Click Save on the Standard toolbar.
