    I believe this is because the "year" text box in your "birth date" field is still technically there. We just hid it using custom CSS code, but it is still there. So when you set the "birth date" field to required, it will require all the text boxes of it (month, day AND year) to be filled out.

    For now, I'm unable to think of a way to bypass this limitation. As long as the date field is set to required, it will need all the parameters of your date (month, day and year) to be filled out.

    You can instead use two separate drop down options that will act as the month and day.

    With that you can set them as required and give you more flexibility on how the data can be manage and we can further design or position its layout. Let us know if that will work.

    makes sense. I adjusted the field to not be required. Thanks for the support.
