How to allow expanding records, but not make them editable?
In the option to expand and edit, I want to expand the record only, not to make it editable.

If you want to make the record clickable:

  1. Enable the option to Allow users to edit/expand linked records.

  2. Go to the child form settings (not the parent field) and make all fields read-only.

💡Tip

This function also makes the records “expandable” in the gallery view, allowing users to "learn more". For example, you can make the record (card) preview some high-level information by default. But when the user clicks, it pops up to show full details.
