It would be great to get an enhancement that automatically clears the value contained in a child field when it’s hidden based on the option selected in the parent field. We’ve run into various scenarios where we have activity EA’s with parent/child relationships (1 field will appear only if a specific value in another field is selected) and both fields are required when they appear on the screen. In some cases, the parent values is set and it causes the child to display, the child field then has a value entered, and then the activity is saved. Sometimes users go into the activity and update the parent field to a value that causes the child field to be hidden, but the value entered into the child field can’t be cleared. Even if the user selects <Not Selected> from the child field picklist before it’s hidden, the child field does not clear. This is problematic because if the value remains, the field continues to appear on DCT’s that show the field and the child field value still appears in reports that include the child field. It would be ideal to have the child field automatically clear if it is hidden based on the parent field selection.
