Tick this box if the question is mandatory and leave it blank if it is optional.  This will depend on whether the answer to this question is critical to the data that is being collected, such as signature to confirm customer acceptance.

Full screen width?

This option is usually used in conjunction with multi-line text boxes, giving the user a full-width long text box in which to enter information. This value overrides any formatting set for the section.

Clear during batch entry? If a 'Save and add new button' is enabled a series of jobs can be added quickly.  Under normal circumstances the main job data (Customer, Location, etc) is carried between jobs.  Any items that have this box ticked will be cleared between jobs.  For example, customer, location, date, etc may stay the same for a number of jobs, along with a description of 'Annual service' and 'Machine type' but the Machine Number will be different.
