We have an environment set up where we use a people picker field in a list. The people picker is a required field.
There are a lot of different required fields and if they aren't filled out the form wont save to the list.
However if I try doing the same with the people picker field the form saves EVEN WHEN the field is empty!!!!
Is this one more of the quirks of SharePoint or do I need to fix something?
EDIT: as it seems that I'm confusing everybody here goes from the beginning.
I have made a people picker field called Approving manager"
This field is now added to a form on a list and as you can see it the field is marked with a *
Now when I fill the form and skip filling out the "Approving manager" field SharePoint lest me ( this isn't allowed with any other field type!! )
So here is the end product
As shown in the picture the item is added to the list and as you can clearly see the Approving manager field is blank.
So I am asking if the people picker doesn't care if it is required or not or if there is something more/else I have to do to make the field behave?
