Indicate required fields when editing a record

We need the ability to make standard and custom fields mandatory for existing records. 

When a record is being edited, the UI should flag empty required fields so that the user is prompted to update them. This will help us ensure that critical information is included for all of our records.

    This description is the use case that is important to us.

    Rally supports marking a field as Required for existing records.  If a user edits an existing Record, Rally will inform the user they must fill in all Required fields in order to save their changes. We have found this useful for getting users to add needed data to records that are still under active development.

    Agree this is the type of feature that would be very valuable for capturing the required fields.

    This is really important for us and should be implemented ASAP.

    We have made a recent change related to Goals in that every feature must be mapped to a standard and newly redefined set of goals.  Due to this change we've added the Goals field to the Create Feature form and set it to be 'required' which addresses this need for new features, but the multitude of existing features are missing this mapping, so it would be a huge benefit to be able set this standard field as mandatory so that upon the next edit, users are forced to map the existing feature the appropriate goal.

    This is required functionality to ensure an Idea/Initiative/feature is ready to move to next step in the process.
