I am using 5.0 SP1 and in there, you go OV Configuration>Data>Required fields>organization, select the field you want to be mandatory and select the Required box. If you want it always required that is all you need to do; if conditionally required, add the condition.
Thanks for the quick and perfect answer. Still have one more question.In SD 5.1 form designer is a little bit different, than in 5.0. How do I create in Organization table or any other table a completly new field with also a completly new attribute.If I choose a field for example Name2, when create a new field with this name and rename it, than also the other Name2 field gtes a capture label with the name that I renamed. I don't want to do this, I would like to create a completly new field. I hope I explained to you in un understandable way. Thanks, Regards, Miles*
In SD 5.10, you do not have unlimited custom fields like in one of the new SP in SD 4.5. You are given fixed numbers of custom fields of different types like in the old SP on sd 4.5. You select the custom field type that you want, rename it and activate it, chuck it in the form and make it mandatory. You cannot create a brand new custom field out of thin air like in sd 4.5 with the newer SP. Note: the more custom fields you used, the more your performance will be affected.
I just tried in sd 5.10. I rename the new organisation text 1 to jas custom field. Activate it, and tick available in all categories (maybe u didn't enable all categories). Make it a required field. Go to the organisation form and I see "jas custom field" in the left white workspace.
You cannot add new fields in the left side white workspace of the organisation form that do not come from EXISTING custom field. As mentioned previously, use EXISTING custom field, renamed them and activate them and they will then appear on the left side white workspace so you can then add it to the form.
Thanks, for a good advice, I thought so, there is no chance to add a completly new attribute fo a new field. One more question: Does the existing field that I renamed, which appears in the left workspace to choose. does it appear in every worspace even on different forms that I would like to create a new field?
