    No validation is triggered if "Social share" widget is marked as required field.

    Asked by cheekyface on February 01, 2015 at 07:45 PM

    Hi.

    I'm using the social share widget but it looks as though the required field option doesn't work for that widget.

    I've set it as a required field but if I try to click through to the next page of the form without doing anything with the social share it will let me through without any warnings if I simply click "next" button a couple of times.

    On first click, there is no warning but nothing happens.  Then when I click again it goes to the next page no problem.
    I've set up a way around this for my form as a "just-in-case" but it would be good if it actually required that the share was submitted successfully before the user can move to the next page in the form.

    Hello,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    I did test the "Social Share" widget and I am able to replicate the issue you are having. Even if the "Social Share" widget is marked as a required field, form can be submitted without clicking on any of the share buttons.

    Let me report this to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!
