Changes to “Confirm IDT” Function on the PCSP Form for Non-Bexar County LA Users

Once the Non-Bexar County LA user clicks one of the checkboxes for field A3400A or field A3500A, the selected field section becomes enabled and required. The other field remains enabled and optional (it will become required if user clicks the checkbox). Non-Bexar County LA users can enter information into both fields, but the form will not be rejected if only one field is complete
