    How to make line description mandatory on all invoices

    Want to hide description field on invoice header, and make the line Reference > Description a mandatory field. Using sandbox, header description was hidden, and Description is marked as mandatory, but system allows invoice to be saved and submitted without anything in the description. Is there another way to make this field required so the system doesn't allow it to process even when blank?

      Hi Jon,

      There will be a another field like <>inputtext:Description just below the column name. You need to make this field as mandatory. As per your comment above you just mandated Column name and not input text area. check once.

        Thanks, Nishanth! There is a field there to make it required, but that is grayed out. Is it possible to make it work with a coding change in that field? I've never messed with those before.

      Yes it is possible, next to read only property click on that down arrow, click expression and by default it is false change it to true. Click apply and ok. now test your personalizations and publish
