I have a custom object where I don’t want users to edit any fields. I’ve made these all Read-Only in the Page Layout, but when I test the page I can still edit these fields by double-clicking and then saving. I’ve verified that I’m using the correct Page Layout. Any thoughts?
If you are administrator you will still be able to edit the fields. If you REALLY want to make sure the fields can’t be edited change the permissions on the field level security (you can do this by going into the setup menu, selecting the field and then clicking the view security button) rather than on the page layout.
- Are you testing this with a
Sys Adminprofile? Do take note that sys admins have Edit
Read Only fieldspermission by default. So even if a field is
Read only, an Admin with this permission would still be able to edit them.
- If you are testing this with your new custom profile, you may want to double check that
these permissionshave been taken off or not
Page layout assignment- Since you have made the fields as
Read Onlyat the page layout level, please check if you have the right page layout assigned to the profile that you are using to test this out
