    Multiple Text Field Requirements

    Asked by rugbynorcal on September 07, 2016 at 02:23 PM

    If I require a multiple text field with 6 fields, is there a way to "unrequire" one field? I like the format of the multiple text field and how condensed it is, so that I'm not creating 6 text box fields, but I only want 5 of the fields required. Is there a way to do this?

    Are you using Multiple Text Fields widget and you have added 6 fields and you want to make required only five? Unfortunately that is not possible to achieve. You can make all fields required inside of Multiple Text Fields widget or none. 

    Only possible workaround that I can provide you is to use 6 text box fields instead of Multiple Text Fields widget. If you want to change spacing between fields please check this guide:
