User gets stuck when completing detail info first

    I encountered the following weakness, that also shows up in the invoice demo on the OX web-site :

    The user is creating a new invoice and first starts creating the invoice details. At the moment that user has completed all the data about the invoice detais, he gets stuck. He can not save the invoice details because the invoice itself demands certain required fields (in the OX demo these required fields are the invoice number and the customer). The user will inevitably loose all the data he entered in the invoice details because he has to navigate to the invoice first and first enter there the required fields of the invoice.

    What is the best way to avoid the user to get trapped in this situation?

    Hi Marc,

    the easiest solution is using default values for all required fields. Anyways, you're right. We have to improved this behavior.
