Field Properties


When a user opens the form, the fields to be displayed on the form and the access to the data fields should be restricted as per the role.

In a Purchase Order HyperApp, when an Approver opens the form, he should only view PO Date, Description, and Amount and not be able to edit them. When the Requestor opens the form, he should be able to both view and edit PO Date, Description, and Amount.
