Hi @Sreenatha Reddy J ,

AFAIK this is not possible in cloud.

You can create screen with both fields (date + reason) and enable to edit these fields only during some transitions together, but still you cannot force user to fill in the reason field if date field is changed.

Yes, the transition screen is the only route to go to get even close, but as Hana says, you still will not be able to force the user to enter a value. 

You could build an automation to send you an email when the user populates the first field and the second field is blank. Then you could contact the user to educate them to fill it in.
