TBL_CONTACT Record creator

Hi Team,

 

The Record Creator field is READ ONLY By default.

For several reasons, my customer want to change it and to reassign Contact Record Creator to an another active User.

Obviously, I've try to change by program without sucess

 

Question: Is a way to change the Readonly attribute of the record creator ?

I run ACT V13

Thanks in advance

There is not a way to change the read-only property of the record creator field.

OK ...

 

Is a chance to have a modification of the field type acces  of Record creator to allow read/write?

Is one or more  reasons to have this field type as ReadOnly ?

 

Thank's in advance

I believe the primary reason to have this field as read-only is to ensure the integrity of the data in the database, it ensures that the creation of a contact is non-repudiable. Moreover, I don't think it'd make sense to be able to change it from a logical stand point, as the data in the Record Creator field would be factually incorrect, same goes for Create Date and Edit Date fields, this information should reflect what has actually occurred in the database.

I agree your point

I already suggest to my customer to add a field to manage the "Collaborator in charge of the contact" .

Many thanks for your response

All my best

The record manager field sounds perfect for their needs, unless they're using it for something else.
