Dependent fields - enable/disable fields based on my choice on an adjacent field

  • 1.  Dependent fields - enable/disable fields based on my choice on an adjacent field

    I have a field of drop down menu of two choices: NEW and  EXISTING), there is an adjacent field that I want to keep it disabled (Grayed out) if I choose NEW, and want it to be enabled when I choose Existing... is there such a way to do this? Thank you

    I suggest using a Dynamic Form Rule.  There is a tab for that when you customize the form.

    When [Choice] is not equal to NEW
    Make Read only [Adjacent]
    Change Adjacent to (blank)

     and set that rule to fire all the time, so uncheck the checkbox at the very bottom of that rule.

    Hey, thanks for the replay, I am very new to this, I have learned the basics here but I need this feature very urgent, I don't know where to set rules from, where should I go to set dynamic form rule?

    thanks

    no problem,
    When you are viewing a record on a form, look for Customize this form at the top right.

    Then look for the tab called Dynamic Form Rules.
