    How to temporarily disable required fields

    Asked by ScienceInPublic on May 06, 2015 at 11:43 PM

    While testing my form I don't want to have to fill in every required field every time, ensuring that email addresses, ph numbers are valid.

    I know I could edit multiple fields and turn off the "required" property, but then I would have to manually re-edit the entire form to turn back on the ones that need to be "required". Managing validation would be even more difficult.

    Instead, I want to temporarily disable the required property and the validation property while testing. Is there a way to do that?

    Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately it is only possible to turn required fields off manually and turn them on after you finish your testing. 

    However I would suggest that you enable Auto Fill Feature. It will make the form to autofill with the last updated info. Inside of this article you can find out how to do it:

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
