Mandatory Fields

When creating or importing Students, some fields are mandatory, which means you must enter information in those fields in order to proceed further. Different metadata templates have different mandatory fields. You can identify the mandatory fields in your system by finding field names that have an asterisk displayed after them in the Create New Student screen or while using the Import Template option. For example, the Date of Birth field is mandatory, which means it is displayed as Date of Birth <field> *. When creating a student, if you do not enter information in a field marked as mandatory, then a red warning triangle will be displayed next to the field name. When you hover your mouse over the red warning triangle, a pop-up message will appear, specifying the reason why the information input by you in that field is invalid.

Optional Blank

When creating or importing Students, you do not need to enter information in every field, some fields can be left blank. Any field that is not mandatory can be left blank.
