Can a text field be made mandatory

Hi,

Can a text field be made mandatory depending on the dropdown list values?

i.e. If I select value 'X' from dropdown, can a text field be made mandatory.

Our PPM version is 7.1 SP6.

It can be made mandatory as a part of Workflow transition and with new WF Steps.

But not on-the-fly in PPM 7.1

This functionality is available in 7.5 with the UI Rules feature.

I did note that you are on 7.1. I was implying that you should consider upgrading to 7.5 if you have identified a need for functionality that the upgrade would provide. I have not looked into the end-of-support date for 7.1 but it must be getting close. Upgrades are time consuming but your plans in this regard would have an impact on how much effort you would want to put into a 7.1 workaround that will be unnecessary in the future.

Hi Ramana,
Please have a execution step, and choose token. and enter your token name in the execution step and validation of the Ex. St. is the same validation of your drop down.

Create 2 paths and in one path choose the required tranistion as your specific drop down, and in the other path choose the remaining '!=' your field name.

Have different statuses, In the status dependencies, select a status which is mandatory.

Please let me know if you cannot understand, I can create a sample WF and send you the doc.

Thank you.
