Field-level permissions

Problem: Some fields within an entity may need different permissions than others.

E.g., if a Task has a “Due Date” field, this ideally would not be editable by the Assignee - only by a “manager”. But the Assignee will have Editor permission for most everything else in the Task.

A hack might be to use a lookup to a Due Date field that exists elsewhere, but that complicates changing the Due Date for someone who does have permission.

I don’t know when (if ever) field-level permissions might be implemented, but in the meantime, you might consider having an automation that notifies the manager when the Due Date field is updated, so at least he/she can be warned that someone is making changes.
(and the change can be reverted if necssary)
