Save and continue only when required fields are complete

Hi Gravity Community, I hope this finds you all safe and well.

I have searched high and low but no joy in researching if with ‘Save and continue’ that it works conditionally whereas the save can only happen when all required fields have been completed.

It’s a long shot I know and defeats the objective of ‘Save and continue’ plus would require validation hooked into the save function by default. I don’t think it’s possible, but wondered if that can be confirmed by the Community before I confirm my assumptions to my customer who is requesting this.

Thank you all in advance. Elliott
