    Per customer's request:

    STEPS: File upload Required Fields

    1. User makes an upload. Just the Description is being displayed. This is a "Required Field"

    2. After the file completes the upload, the user Click on " Edit" this file

    3. In the Edit screen, he can see the following items set with asterisk

    showing the following other required fields:




    Today, customer is making many uploads and needs to have a rework accessing all objects to fill those required fields. The question is: how the product is allowing the creation of a new object with some Required Fields with empty values ? This should not be allowed and this is the reason all Required Fields should be listed in the "Upload page".

    - View Version history, the task view designer provides now the ability to add a "Version Component" that will list all the versions in the File Task View

    - Download is also available through the version component
