Mandatory fields

  • 1.  Mandatory fields

    In Business Central is there a way to set mandatory fields on a page.  For example on the SO can you set the planned ship date to have the red * and be mandatory?

    Important clarification here...A developer can set the flag for fields to have the red asterisk * on a specific page, but this is only a visual reminder unless they also write code that forces users to fill the field.

    Through personalization, you could move all the fields you need to be updated to one tab.

    Hey Robb.  I am not aware of that.  Was that introduced for BC14 RTC or is that just on later versions on the modern client?

    Hello Lewis,

    I wasn't an early adopter of Business Central.  So I don't know when this became a feature.  Earlier this year, I was using a sandbox v15 that allowed me to make the changes I referenced.

    Business Central has come a long way since v13.  From then to now Microsoft has gone from a horse drawn carriage you'd see in NYC at Christmas time to a luxury stretch limo complete with a champagne fountain you'd see in the Hamptons at weddings for the rich and famous.
