Highlight required fields for transitions without coding

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a way to highlight missing required fields during a transition.

For example, if field X is required for a transition (and only required for that transition), someone who tries to progress in the workflow without filling in field X will get an error message. Is there a way to make field X highlighted or more noticeable when the edit window is opened again? Or to automatically have the edit window pop up after the error message is displayed? Any non-coding solutions would be very helpful!

Thanks in advance,

You can make the fields required on the workflow. For making it noticable, you can put in description field big RED letters "REQUIRED". This will be visible on the transition screens. If user forgets to fill in, there will be RED letters asking the user to fill it in. Ignore if you already tried it.
