    Add red asterisks next to mandatory fields on the Incident window

    JohnO Specialist

      Hi Everyone!

       

      A lot of our users got used to seeing red asterisks " * " next to mandatory fields requiring them to fill out. How do you go about doing it without a risk of being affected by any calculation.

       

       

      Thanks!

      Sincerely,

      John

          Hi John,

           

          in WebAccess usually required fields are marked as red, not with an asterisk. You have three options to mark an attribute as mandatory:

          1. In Object Designer you can set any attribute to mandatory if needed.

          2. But I prefer to set them to be mandatory in Window Manager.

          3. You can set the mandatory also using a window calculation. Please refer to the following community article:
            Dynamic Windows - Understanding Window Calculations

           

          In the end, it should look like this:

          And you do not need to add any asterisks manually or need to fear that your asterisk will be moved by any calculation, etc. In Workspace all mandatory fields will be marked with an asterisk automatically.
