Why are my required fields on Ideas not showing as required?

Knowledge Article Number 000206046
Description Ideas pages utilize Visualforce to display the page on the record. This means that any Ideas page layout field properties settings (Read-Only, Required) will affect only custom fields, not standard fields.

Resolution You can utilize Validation Rules to make fields required. Below are some examples of the Validation Rule formulas you can use:

For the standard Categories multiselect picklist field:


For the standard Status picklist field:

ISPICKVAL( Status , "")
