Hi Pbratlien,

When clicking on Configure Fields button, you will see there is a Custom link that show all custom fields, just check on the boxes to make them emmerged in future.

Or make the fields mandatory

we have some users that get configure fields set to all but some users don't have it set to all is there a way to see who has what set?


If you are still having problems try the "Where is my Field" helper,

Sorry for the delay on the answer basicly our solution was to have the users effected change their fields to all.
