Do not allow copy record?

  • 1.  Do not allow copy record?

    I'm assuming this is a permission or table option? I'm looking to remove the option to click 'More', 'Copy this record' when you are viewing a record.

    Where can I find that?

    If the user does not have permission to Add, then I assume that button would not be offered. Why do you want to block the use of that button if hey users have permission to add.

     Note that each field can be set as to whether it copies or not, when using that button, so it is more likely that you just want to limit which fields get copied.

    I have a copy master detail api button to copy everything. I want to force my users to use the copy master detail button, and not use the copy record button.

    But interesting about limiting the fields that copy. If I check those boxes, will the copy master API respect those rules?

    Copy Master detail is documented and performs to copy ALL fields. 
    I do not think that there is a native way to suppress the More .. copy, but i you uncheck every field, then it will not be useful to the user - which is your goal, essentially they will end up in add record mode with no data pre-filled.

    Gotcha. I have an automation that blanks out fields from the copy master api. I just started thinking it would be easier just to uncheck those boxes if the api respected those rules.
