Contact - User - fields --- how to edit / delete

I have over 130 user fields - in contact detail view, user tab - and I cannot edit most of them - and I do not know how to delete.  All field help is for contacts, groups, companies...  Any thoughts??    Thanks,  Ron

Re: Contact - User - fields --- how to edit / delete

Hello Ron,

Welcome to the ACT! Online Community!


Since the fields are not editable, it sounds like there may have been some copy/paste commands used to populate the User Fields tab. If this is the case, those copy/pasted fields will need to be removed from the layout > then new fields created through Tools > Define Fields, which can then be added to the layout through the Tools > Design Layouts option.


Here are articles to assist:

- Define Fields: KB Article 15335

- Design Layouts: KB Article 15332
