Making Fields Read-Only
A read-only field is a field that users can view, but not modify. You can make both system and user-defined fields read-only as follows:
- From the Sidebar, navigate to the field list of the object class where you want to make a read-only field. For example, to access the list of Library Item fields, go to
Customization > IT Assets > Equipment Lending Library > Fields.
- Double-click the field. The Field Properties (for a system field) or User Defined Field (for a user-defined field) dialog box appears.
- Under Options, select the Read Only check box.
- Click OK.
- Click Save on the Standard toolbar to save the changes.
You can also make a field read-only when creating a new UDF or customizing a system field label.
