Loophole in Required Fields when Creating List Items in Microsoft Lists for iOS

I am using the Microsoft Lists app for iOS.

When creating a new item by creating multiple columns of settings that must be entered,

If I use the New button in the lower left corner of the screen or the New button in the list,

The New button in the bottom left corner of the screen or the New button in the list will notify me that I have not entered a required field,

However, by tapping directly on an item in a column other than the New button, an item can be registered even if there is no information in the required fields.

To prohibit this, could either of the following be achieved?

・When creating a new item, it must always be done from the New button in the lower left corner of the screen or the New button in the list.

・Do not allow users to directly tap items in columns other than the New button.

    Hi @長田 俊平 ,

    I upgraded my version to 2.15.3 and the situation is the same as yours. This situation is very strange and should be a bug.

    Hi @長田 俊平 ,

    I'm sorry you're having this problem. I tested it on my mobile phone, and the situation of creating a new item in the two methods is the same, that is, there is no way to save the required fields without information. This is the default behavior. Let's perform simple troubleshooting to confirm the scope of the problem:

    1. The version of my Microsoft Lists is 2.14.2. Please check your version to confirm whether this situation is related to the version.
    2. Create a new List, and then try to create a new item to see if the situation is the same.
    3. Log in to a different account to see if the problem still exists.
    4. Uninstall the app, then reinstall it and try again.
    5. Try using another mobile phone.
