Making a field required... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    i have a column in a document library that was created from a content type. I went in to the content type, accessed the column and selected the option to make it a required field.

    Issue now is that it still does not function as a required field and i do not have an asterisk showing that it is a required field.

    Suggestions please.

  • Hi Henry,

    I cannot reproduce your issue in my SharePoint 2013.

    Create a new column in the content and set it as required and compare the results.

    Add the content type into another library and compare whether the issue exists.

    Check whether the issue is existed in other content type.

    And I suggest you create a required field and add it into the content type and compare the results.

    Best Regards,

    Lisa Chen
