In RTC, can I have an attribute show up in a certain state to be filled in and only show if it has text?

Logan Torres (132) | asked May 03, 10:41 a.m.

I have a work item with multiple states, with one being the deferred state. If I go into the deferred state I have a large HTML attribute that needs to be filled out called "Reason for Deferment". I want this attribute to only show up if I go into the Deferred state and then show in all other states after that. Is this possible or no?

 Here are the options to hide attributes:

  1. Hide if Empty
  2. Hide on Creation
  3. Hide in workflow states
  4. Hide if no Link exists
  5. Hide if no association exists

Option 3 is not dynamic and the attribute is either hidden or not.

Personally I can see no reason why you would even want to hide the attribute. It is valuable information that shows that the item once was deferred and I can't see a reason why you would want to hide that. You can't hide it in the history either.
