In Version 254 of Synergy Enterprise (which includes EM10 – Version 102), Exact has modified some code allowing the Attachment field to be made Mandatory when Created (Open).  When this field is “Mandatory” when “Open” in the workflow definitions, Synergy will allow the request to be placed in a Draft stage without a document attached.

Once the document is attached, then the Resource may “Submit” the request.

Before this modification, the Attachment field could not be used and designated Mandatory when creating a new request.  It woud fail unless there was an attachment associated with the request.
