Summary17685: When adding a new participant, user is able to Save without adding any information and a blank record is save
DescriptionThis happens because there is no validation which fails.
The model does not have any required fields, while several fields explicitly accept empty values.
That results in empty records being accepted.

Adding a new rule doens't sound like a great idea as the impact will be important.

I would just add a warning message for managers to confirm they are about to enter a token with no email nor name, nor last name.

Steps To ReproduceInitialize a participants table of a survey.

Do not enter any information, click either Save or Save and close - empty record will be created.

It's really OK for me : since no information is really required : why not accept empty participant.

It's not a bug .

Well, there are supposed to be some required fields in my opinion. Just as it is not possible to import a blank CSV file of participants.

I would say at least there should be a warning.

Dummy can create blank partcipant.

I know a lot of people filling a CSV file with user1, user2, user3 … only to have lines.

There really no reason to disable blank participant :)
