Advanced Field Protection
Advanced Field Protection is designed to give you control over which user may enter data in your ACT! fields. With Advanced Field Protection, you may give the following rights to the users:
- full rights at all time
- initialize rights only (ie. the user may enter a value when the field is blank but is not allowed to modify an existing value)
- no rights at all (the user may never change or enter a value)
Advanced Field Protection enhances the existing ACT! field protection feature. The first step is to protect your field(s) as you would normally do in ACT! (see the owner's manual for more on this). The problem with the protection offered by ACT! is that no user may edit the field at any time. With Advanced FIeld Protection, you may allow users to edit the field. You may define Global users settings which by default will be applied to all your protected fields.
It is even possible to define drop-down lists
for the protected fields
