SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I was under the impression that if you have a column with a required value, the dialog "Edit Properties" should be displayed automatically when trying to upload a file.

I distinctly remember seeing this happen before, but now it doesn't happen. The column in question has the default value field empty in the settings.

Do I have to do something else to make this work?

Does the library have different content types enabled? –  teylyn Mar 18 '13 at 23:26
The one where I first discovered this did, but I have since tried libraries both with and without enabled content type management... Same problem either way. –  Anders Svensson Mar 19 '13 at 4:32
Is versioning enabled on the library? See this question –  teylyn Mar 19 '13 at 4:40
Again, same thing, I tried both with and without versioning enabled... –  Anders Svensson Mar 19 '13 at 22:29
