I have a odd question about mandatory fields that I am hoping for some help on.
I have three tabs in a business application. These tabs have different fields. On the third tab, I can preview & submit the data in a couple of ways. 1) I can save and resume later or 2) Submit the form.
In the case of the first scenario, “Save and Resume Later” a field on tab 2 is required. In the case of the second scenario, “Submit”, the field in question is not required. So essentially there are three states this input control can be in:
- Mandatory if “Save & Resume Later” is clicked.
This is an odd scenario that I have not come across in the past. Can anyone offer any advice on how to best handle this?
