Disabling Required Field to "Optional Field"

  • 1.  Disabling Required Field to "Optional Field"

    In Dynamics SL 2015 I wanted to disable or change the following function as "optional" but couldn't get how to do it.

    Can anyone help to give a hint where to look the process to disable the GL Subaccount-Required field at the resource level changing it to "Optional"?
    Thank You.

    Hello Abe,
    When a field is required, you cannot make it optional because it could be a key field or it may be use elsewhere in the system.   The subaccount can be used for controlling ledger posting of labor and allocations and is used as a selection criterion and sort option for reports, inquiries, and approval processes.  If you do not want to fill out this field, I suggest using customization manager to set it to a default value.  That value is validated so it must exist in the subaccount maintenance table.
