    Hello bksullivan,

    You can set any of your configurable list widget fields as required fields. If the fields are required, even though users will be able to add new rows but they will not be able to submit the form. Please check the screenshot below on how to set configurable list widget fields as required:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    The user has the option of not entering anything which prevents using the required option

    If you make all the fields required in the CONFIGURABLE LIST widget, users should be able to submit unless they fill in the fields correctly. If for some reason they are missing some columns, they will get an error message when submitting.

    If we are not understanding correctly, please correct us and we will be glad to assist.
