How to limit users to edit only the records that they created?
How to limit users to edit only the records that they created?

I have linked records field where my user can create a record and at the same time, they can select records created by other users.

Updated over a week ago

Here is a workaround for this use case.

  1. You'll need two linked record fields that are directed to the same table. Let's take an example of Table 1 and Table 2. In Table 1, set up linked record fields - Field 1 and Field 2, both linked to Table 2.

  2. In the first linked record field (Field 1), activate the Record Finder and deactivate the option for creating/editing records. This field will serve to select records, including those not generated by the user.

  3. The second field (Field 2) is designated solely for creating records. In this field, ensure the Record Finder is turned off while enabling the capability to create and edit records.
