      Description

      Most of the module set-up screens have a notice at the bottom saying "There are required fields in this form marked*" but since the notice is always there, most people do not pay attention to it. Particularly problematic is the fact that the required fields are invariably at the TOP of the form, while the save button and the notice are at the BOTTOM.

      The user thus can click on "submit" and sit there wondering why nothing is happening. Now, if the notice appeared (as it does in many other web applications) ONLY after a save was attempted on an incomplete form, users would then know exactly what they need to do. [Even this tracker application has this feature!]

            We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
