Can a child form entry be "required"?

When I have a hierarchical structure of form/sub-form (or parent form/child form), is it possible to make the child form “required” to be added/completed before the main form data is uploaded? It appears that a parent form entry can be uploaded even if there is no corresponding child form entry filled for that parent (this is the case even if the variable/fields within the child form are marked as “Answer is required”).

For our use case, it is vital that a child form entry is mandatorily filled for each parent form entry (and not missed due to oversight). Is this possible in Epicollect5?


A child form entry cannot be required.

An alternative approach would be using a single form where the questions are split into different sections using GROUP(s) where each group has required questions.
