Mandatory should be made a property of a store dialog
This was marked as complete in 6.9 under "Mandatory fileds" idea, but I do not see it available. It appears that field can't be empty is still a property of the FC profile which means it is the same for all store dialogs.
I'd like to be able to make field compulsory for some dialogs, but not others, For example when user stores Invoices using 'Store Invoices' store dialog the field be 'can't be empty' but when using another store dialog this field is optional.
Same way you've done for 'Select List Only' property.
Thank you for your contribution.
Your idea is available with version 7.1.

This feature is absolutely mission critical for some of our Fortis to DocuWare Migrations. We need this ability ASAP!

From my point of view, both are helpful. But set this option in a store field's option is really missing !
In some scenario you would like the field to be mandatory all the time, whatever the store dialog you re using. But in other scenarios you would like to set some field as required depending of the store dialog.

Set Required Fields in the Store Dialogs - looks like this was promised many versions ago, but I don't see how it can be set.

Hi Maurizio, assuming that you're talking about moving the control of mandatory fields from the cabinet itself to the store dialogs, I'm very much in favour of this idea. We create different store dialogs because different roles and different documents can have different requirements, even if they're using the same fields. For example, a specific store dialog may expose one of the other fields in a cabinet and anyone who uses that store dialog (because it's been assigned to them) HAS to fill in one of the fields, but that field isn't mandatory for those not using that store dialog. Setting up a whole new cabinet in cases like this is often not practical.

In the store make have the possibility to set one or more field as mandatory.
