How do I protect from deletion or overwriting?

[ Edited ]

How do I protect certain fields so they can't be overwriten or deleted by mistake? This would be contact information such as email address, customer numbers and other information that I do not want changed? I didn't findthis easily in the Help section.

 

If I have to change an email address or other field, can I view the original data that is overwritten or deleted?

 

There are only 2 users on the database currently. I am the administrator, but also the main user.

Thanks, Judy

In the Premium versions, you can use Field Level Security to control access (full, none, read-only) per user to each field. Please see KB 19185 for information on field level security.

Thank you very much for your help. That link thouroughly explained what I needed. I also went in under define field- edit field -customize behavior-and selected to Generate History so I could track the changes.
