For audit purposes, your organization’s guidelines may require that all users provide documentation for each edit made to an object. You must specifically enable mandatory comments, by default the comment field is optional.
To make comments mandatory when editing objects:
- Select the Administration tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Administration page.
- Under General, click Global Settings.
- Under Change Control Comments, select the Make adding comments mandatory check box to make the Change Control section of the editing pages mandatory. If selected, users must provide a comment in the Change Control section of the editing pages before they save new objects or edits. If this option isn't selected, change control comments are optional.
- Under Change Control, add comments, if required.
- Click Update.
