I'm having some issues deciding how to indicate to users the some fields are required and some are optional. I've encountered these three scenarios, and the following solutions:
- All fields are required --> I could add a text that says "all fields are required".
- Some fields are required --> If most fields are required, I would add the word "optional" next to the fields that are optional. If most fields are optional, I'd add a "*" next to the required fields.
- All fields are optional --> I'm not sure how to treat this case.
My team's concern is that if we write "All fields are required", then users might expect to have some guidance in every form (when fields are not all required).
