Suggested use of "Required" and "Composition" relation popups

Ninox Profile

What are the advantages and disadvantages of changing "Required" and/or "Compositon" to "Yes" in a child relationship? I think I understand the theory, however, I am concerned about usability for the end user.


Which settings tend to result in a solution that is less confusing to the end user? We tend to offer lower priced solutions, so we need to keep it simple. I would greatly appreciate hearing the experiences of other developers who have their Ninox solutions out in the wild.

Hi Dean, 

The "Required" option shows the field in red, so that the user knows he should fill in data in that field. 

The addvantage of a "Yes" in the "Composition option" is that you can delete or duplicate all child records with the parent record.

Best, Jörg
