Dependent Fields are not yet compatible with Lightning Experience when using Sales Path

Knowledge Article Number 000230610
Description If Lightning Experience is enabled in Salesforce, using Sales Path on Opportunities will mean that dependent fields on the Opportunities layout will not work.
Resolution For example, if there is a dependent field based on Opportunity Stage, when changing the stage using the Sales Path, the dependent field will not automatically update.

Until this functionality is available, workarounds include:
  • Remove the dependency and create a validation rule or workflow rule to update the field in question to the desired value.
  • Remove the dependency and add the field to the Sales Path so the sales rep can easily see it beneath the stage and populate it before marking the stage complete.
