Not sure if I'm missing something or if this is the expected functionality. As has been stated in this issue (https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-17631), there is not currently support for requiring certain fields in Next Gen projects.
It was suggested to use Workflow Rules and pointed to this article where it says "Remind people to update empty fields" is an option. When I go to the linked article that explains available workflow rules, "remind people to update empty fields" isn't documented there.
Regardless, when I try to create a workflow rule to require a certain field on transition, I'm only shown the attached selection of fields. Is this correct or am I missing something? Is there no way to require fields other than the ones shown here? For example, it's logical that "Time tracking" would be an important field to require, but that doesn't seem to be an option.
