Restrict Editors on a Custom Field.


Is it possible for me to restrict who may edit a custom field in a screen which is otherwise open to all?

I have a drop down menu I created, which I would like to be Edit only for a User Group, while all other fields remain open to edit?

Many thanks

absolutely, go to your workflow and in post function restrict what group can edit.

Not in a screen.

Your options are either code/add-ons or to move the "edit" action into the workflow where you can use conditions to stop people using the transition that allows the edit action.
