We use a number of custom requirement types. These are all in place from a prior admin. One is a general type of requirement, a non-specific type that lacks direct ties to any certain application or criteria.

We also have a number of custom fields that tie in to the requirements, which are required fields, which are used to for a number of reports/metrics. The general one though is not needed for our reports, so I don't want it to use the required field aspect for the custom fields.

Typically we use workflow to set our fields and layout. I was tying this for the requirements but not having great results, so wondering if there is just a better method.

Hello,

You can set the custom fields (the user defined ones) via the Requirements Types customization settings. Here you can set what custom fields show for each type of requirement, and set whether required or not.

See below pic for example:

From the customization and Requirement Types settings, you can under the User Defined Fields tab, see your full list of UDFs. Here you can set them to be seen per req type, and if required or not. This is much easier than using workflow edits.

Awesome and way easier. I must have missed that in the guide, that is a lot easier. Too bad other modules don't have such for field setup.
