    Required Field

    raltomondo

      When reviewing my responses, I find that I am missing data from a 'required' field.  That shouldn't be.  If it's a 'required' field, no entry should have been made until the form has been completed properly.  I got a lame answer the first time I sent this message a few weeks ago.  You all said "....the field wasn't filled in".  If that is the case, how does the 'required' field option work?

            Hi,

            Thank you for sharing the form.  I have responded with additional questions. When you get a chance, please provide the addtional information.

             

            I have not been able to reproduce the problem.  Is there any chance that you or you collaborators added the required field to the form after the form has been distributed and collected responses? If this is the case, then responses that you collected prior to adding the required field, will show an exclamation mark for this field in the responses table.

             

            Thanks,

            Lucia

              Those those folks don't know how to do that stuff on the computer.  I,'m the only one that designs and distributes and publishes the form.

                Hi,

                  Did you delete the choices in the Single Choice field (Tournament Date)? If so, and if you selected "Clear" at the warning dialog, then it cleared out all the entries for that particular choice. And this is why you don't see the values.

                 

                Please select 'Mark as Error' button next time. Then, you will see the value with an exclamation. DeletingChoices.png

                 

                 

                 

                 

                 

                I hope this helps resolve your issue,

                Thanks,

                Lucia
