Remove option

    I've created a conditional drop-down field and I'd like to remove the option to <Add a new record...> at the bottom of the list.  I know I can restrict the role permissions so that certain roles cannot add records, but there are certain roles where they need the permission to add a record, but it just doesn't make sense for them to add it from this drop-down list field so I'd like to remove this as an option in the list all together.  Is this possible?

    If you go to Users, Roles, choose Role and User Interface, you can check the option to hide the Add Record button for any Table.  That will hide the Green Add Record Button which I hope is OK, but it will also hide that last <Add new...> at the bottom of the drop down list.

    Hey Mark, 
    To hide the add a new record option at the bottom of a drop down list? 

    It sounded like this is an App wide setting? i was not able to find the " hide the add record button from any table option " 

    Best

    See, Quick Base has an option where you can hide the add a new record option from the drop-down list but, if still, they can add a record if you have shown Add Company button on the form.

    Through my option, we can only hide from the drop-down menu.

    Thanks,

    Gaurav

    As far as I know, if the user has the Permission to add records, then they will see that option to add record at the end of the drop down list.
