  • When checking Mandatory Pre-fill (located in System Admin-> Configuration -> External Request -> Section A), any option select (Check mark) both Display and Mandatory Prefill for a field such as "Position Title".

  • Mandatory and Pre-Fill are two separate Columns.
  • Though, they can look like they are the same column at times.


  • Pre-Fill will only work for those rows that have the Dropdown Menu.
  • Mandatory does not mean it will pre-populate.
