I have one step in the Project workflow causing strange behavior
here's the situation
1) I am in Planning Approval Stage (Status=Planning Review)
2) The sponsor clicks on Approve and project (should) go to "Execution" (Status=Execution)
above is very simple, and should happen, but when the sponsor clicks on "Approve" the next page asks for a mandatory field to be filled called as "Kick-Off Presentation"
I do have a field (of type attachment) called as "Kick-Off Presentation", and in the Request Type --> Status Dependency
Status = Planning Approval Kick-Off Pr = Not Visible
Status = Execution Kick-Off Pr = Visible, Editable, Required
Anybody !! Any Idea why this "Kick-Off Presentation" is prompted before the execution step, where this field is set is mandatory??
why this field doesnt let the user go to the "Execution" without being filled in the Plannign approval where it is not supposed to be visibel, and In Face is not visible unless, the sponsor clicks on Approval.
That is the way the product works. If a field is required at the status being moved to, the user will be prompted for a value. You can avoid this behavior by placing an OR step with no status value between the two steps. This isolates the two steps and the field will only be required when in the second step.
