Setting Read only access on the Layout page ?

we have fields on the contact record which are linked to the company record (obviously). In contact view these fields can be edited. This is not sensible.

 

1) As soon as someone changes the field data in company view it will over write the linked field in the contact view. (what I want is for the user to understand this happens and not change the data in contact view but go to company view)

 

2) Because there is no restriction users forget or don't bother to create a company

 

If  in ACT layout designer you could have the concept of a read only field view then this would work.

 

Note -  If you go to the database field definition and make this read only then you cannot change the data at all, even from company view !

 

PS. There are other database type programs that implement this properly.
