date needed before being able to keep entering data


hi, how can I make smartsheet require someone to enter a date in a cell before continuing to enter data. I want to make it a required field before being able to continue entering data

    I don't believe there is a way to "prevent" them from entering data until the date is filled in. One somewhat "hackey" workaround would be to set conditional formatting for the cells in questions so they have the same font and background color (so they essentially look empty) unless there is a date entered.
