from our meeting this a.m., it seems that the problem is that the record is allowed to be saved with only the Temporary checkbox checked, but in actuality it needs both the checkbox and something selected from the Temporary dropdown. The user should get an alert about the problem, rather than the system quietly dropping the checkbox value.

The issue appears to be resolved. However, FYI, If you check off "Temporary?" and do not select a location from the drop down list, it will not save the checkmark (there is no indicator that it is required to select a location when the check box is selected in the first place). Seems like there should be a message box requesting a selection and an indicator (red asterisk) indicating it is required if checkbox is selected. On that note, the selection field is labeled "Temporary" rather than "Temporary Location", it might be clearer if that were changed.

This appears to work correctly now in the test site - when I checked off “Temporary?” and saved the record without selecting a location, it automatically selected a location from the drop down list. Likewise, when I selected a location from the drop down list, it automatically checked off “Temporary?,” and I was able to save the file and no information was was dropped.
