making a custom field required for team led projects

We have a team-led project to track known limitations. When creating a KL, we want to require selecting at least one value in the custom "Categories" check-list field. I don't see any option for making this field required. Is there a way to do this?

That feature is not currently available. Here is the change request for it.

The best you could do at this time, I think, is create an automation rule to run and alert you or others by email when the field has no value.

That's an interesting work-around. I'll think about it. Thank you. 

I put in my vote to the change request. Thanks for providing the link.
