Here is a new feature proposal: allow to lock (prefilled) fields in forms (or any other way to display field as read-only).
Why that ? We developed a way to use forms with prefilled fields to allow users to update existing rows. Locking values would allow the user to have access to different fields values while not being able to change it.
For instance, let’s say I have a table
Event with different events (with fields like date, location, guests, concerts, etc.) and the user is the organizer of one them. I would like him to be able to update guests and concerts and not date and location. But it could be nice to display date and location on the form.
How ? I think the simplest way would be to add a tick in the form view and use the
prefill_ functionality to fill it. In the form, this would appear as read-only field (grey-scale or so).
Hope this can be useful for other use cases!
