How do I make a field required (in Next Gen Issue Type Task)?


I've added a number of custom fields in Tasks and Stories.

How do I make it so when a user creates a New Issues (using the + button) - the custom fields I want to make required/ mandatory shows up and one is unable to submit the New Issues until the required fields have been filled?

Thanks in Advance
