What are 'required' fields?

When a field is 'required', any unanswered fields will be marked with a red indication message:

This message is displayed only when a user interacts with the required field but does not provide an answer. In the study forms, the labels of required fields are displayed in bold text. 

Only required fields are taken into account when calculating the progress of a record or a survey. Required fields do not force step completion, therefore users can navigate to the next form page even if they have not completed all required fields.

Defining a field as required is done in the form editor when creating or editing a field. The fields below cannot be set as required:

  • Grid fields
  • Calculation fields
  • Remark
  • Summary
  • Repeated measure
  • Randomization
  • Add Report button
