Required Filled Fields

We are currently using ACT 2011 V13.1.111.0 and in a previous version of ACT there used to be a setting where when entering contact information you could mark that certain database fields like "Company Name" have to be filled in.  If it wasn't filled in, it wouldn't let you move on to something else in ACT.  Is that still avaiable in 2011? 

 

Thanks.

Rick

Re: Required Filled Fields

Yes, it's under tools, define fields. Select the field from the drop down.  You will see the allow blank box is selected by default.  Deselect the box and the field is now mandatory.

 

We have opted to color code "required fields" so the users know that they are essential. You can do this via tools, define layouts.

Re: Required Filled Fields

Thank you.  I was thinking that it was that choice but now I know for sure.  Thanks for your help.
