    Hi Ben,

    As this is based on the thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/480111 I will create a new clone that would show you the same set of fields, but with them being required.

    You can see the sets of fields marked as required here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43542709852965

    You can see another clone that shows you the required fields in action:


    Do note that by simply changing the required fields on the first jotform the changes would be applied to styes automatically.

    Now there is one thing to note however and that is that even if the fields are set as required (the ones we get over iframe) this will not be possible to detect in the parent jotform so submission would be possible using the samples above.

    The only way around that would be to not use the fields in the iframe embed, but to instead add them at the end to your jotform so that you can place them in the right place without the need to move them later on.

    Best Regards,
