    Functional testing refers to tests that verify a specific action or function of an application. Functional testing is performed by testers. Usability testing is a technique used to evaluate a product by testing it on users.  For example, when a tester finds that a text box is not validating properly, he has discovered a functional defect.  When a user doesn't understand a validation message because it uses technical jargon, this would be considered a usability defect.

    It is a good idea to differentiate where defects originate in order to more practically assess a defect's Severity and Priority and many quality managment systems include a "Where found" field that helps identify the source of a defect as being functional (found by tester) or usability (found by end-user). 

    Some software test teams have extended the definition of usability defect to include any defect that describes a lack of intuitiveness when using an application.

    Approach is checking with all the 4 mandatory fields and then missing one of the field respectively like give 3 fields and miss one field and giving 2 fields and missing 2 and giving 1 field and missing the other 3 fields.

    Every bug you founf is important. If you found it at the end of release cycle then also inform it/log it. Let the BA decide what to do with it. If it is critical/major then it should be fixed. If it is normal/minor/corner case then can be deffered to next relase.ThanksDatta Deshmukh
