I am creating a site on SharePoint 2010. I have created a document library and want users to be prompted to enter information into required columns when they upload a file. I have:
- Enabled "Allow management of content types?" under Advanced settings
- Changed the settings for some columns in the "Document" content type to required
I would expect now that when a user uploads a document to the document library they would be prompted to enter the required fields.
Instead the document is uploaded and checked in without any prompts. When I select the document and click "Edit Properties" I cannot save the document until the required columns are entered. This is exactly the behavior I want to occur when the documents are first uploaded.
From doing extensive Google searches on the subject this should be working based on the settings above.
