# Bypass Field Requirements Based on Item Status ### :+1: = 0 ----- ### @benhaynes – (2 years ago) The thinking here is that you should be able to turn off field requirements for certain item statuses. For instance, if I am saving a DRAFT/INACTIVE item, I should be able to do so without filling in all requirements. The problem is, that we then need to do a check that all requirements are present before users can switch from DRAFT/INACTIVE to PUBLISHED/LIVE. This might be too much overhead. Let's discuss first.
