Making field required based on another hidden field

I have a status field that is hidden on new mode.  I want to make a notes field required if the status is approved or rejected.  I've tried all the different formulas but when I test it either doesn't make any selection required or it makes all of them even the pending status.

 

I've also tried to hide the notes field based of the same criteria but it doesn't seem to work.  I've done a lot of searches but nothing comes up about the criteria field being hidden first.

 

Is it just not possible to have rules based off a hidden field?

Re: Making field required based on another hidden field

For your status field, do you have your rule set up like this:

If yes, do you have the rule for your notes field set up like this:

If so, then it should work without any problems. Status is approved, notes are required (form is in edit mode):

Status is pending, notes are not required (form is in edit mode):
