Hello,

the title of the question does not tell us very much about your issue. You will probably get better response if you use a description of the problem in the title.

If you do not want to use workflow, do not want to use custom code, then the user will need to fill in the required fields before the item can be saved.

You could use default values for the required fields, which make it clear that the item is still being worked on, like "to be completed" for a text field or 1/1/1900 for a date.

Then the user can save the form without filling in the ACTUAL data and return to the form later. But this would also defy the purpose of required fields.

cheers, teylyn
