How can I stop auto population of custom field

Rob_PRob_P Expensify Customer Posts: 8 Expensify Newcomer


I have a custom field for each report called: Business Purpose. When a new report is created, the system populates the field with the value from the last report. Is there any way to ensure that this field is blank as its default value. Users have a habit of leaving it unedited.

Also - is there any way to make this field mandatory?

    Hi @Rob_P Report fields are always mandatory but unfortunately, there is no way to override the last selected value. This sounds like it would be a great addition to our category named “Ideas” to share your feature request. After you do, other Expensify users will be able to vote on the idea and we can gauge the demand for it.

    The most popular ideas will be reviewed by our team and have a real chance of being placed on our roadmap.
