We have an issue with users making entries in one of our apps by using the Copy this Record option. When they do this, they're copying the record with all data as is and not making the necessary changes to the data on the new record. Obviously this is giving us bad data. I've informed the managers (who requested this change) that they need to police this a little but if we can eliminate them doing it altogether, that would be helpful.

There is not s native way to turn off that option. If the User Role Petmisdions allow them to Add Records, they will see that button.

BUT,
You are in full control as to which, if any, fields copy forward. Just edit the field properties on each field in question to uncheck the box to Copy this field .......

Nice! Thanks for the quick response. That solution should work. I didn't even see that in the field properties until now.
