Required fields not required

Hey! I set up a data definition and set some of the fields as required (text boxes, checkboxes, radio buttons, and drop downs). When the user goes to fill out the form on the various pages that call that data definition, only the text boxes are giving the notice that fields are left blank. The other types of input save fine and do not flag the user that the fields are left blank, even though the field is set to be required in the data definition.

The only settings these fields have in the data definition are the label, id, and required set to yes. I've exhausted everything I know to do. Do you happen to have any idea why? Anything I can try? Attached is the xml from the data definition for reference. Thanks!

    Hi Garon,

    Thanks for the report. I was able to replicate this behavior as well using your Data Definition XML and I then located an existing issue in our tracker related to this problem. I've linked that issue to this discussion so that we can let you know once it has been addressed.

    At the moment I don't have an ETA for a fix, but given how common this likely is across organizations, I'm bumping it up in priority.

    Apologies for the inconvenience! Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with at this time.
