Conditional Mandatory setting

Conditional Mandatory setting

Wouldn't it be great to make the valuation fields mandatory if a user updates a Valuation?
This would stop valuations being entered without a Valued By entry, for example.

Sadly we can't use the current mandatory registry entry as this prevents the record being saved if that field is blank. But sometimes you won't want a value in that field - i.e. saving a new catalogue record that has not yet had a valuation entered.

There are SOOO many places where this would be useful, right across the whole system. Locations, stocktakes, I could list many.

Some other examples:

    * if dimensions/weight entered, Units become mandatory
    * if a Valuation amaount entered, Valued By, Valuation Date, Reason for Valaution, Currency and [ul]Conversion rate become mandatory (we have this subclassed, I think, so we can enter vlauations in non-AUD)
    * if stocktake date entered, Sighted By and Stocktake Status beocme mandatory
    * Condition Checks
    * Locations - if changing location, Requested By and Moved By and Date and Time become mandatory. (we have locations subclassed)


That's just in Catalogue, and there are probably more.  This functionality would be SO useful for ensuring our data is entered thoroughly.

Re: Conditional Mandatory setting

Digging this one out of the archives.  Are there any more takers for this?  Surely other organisations face the same issues?
