Editable fields will have an Edit option, which allows you to designate whether the field is optional or required. Fields that are used by both Asset Management and Help Desk are non-editable.

Once a ticket template is created, fields can be edited by choosing to Edit Form. Changing the room, site, or tag fields will change the behavior of the field for ALL templates.
