Field Level Security columns changed to read and edit access

Knowledge Article Number 000233954

Starting with the Summer 16 release, Field Level Security columns name are Read and Edit access. Prior to Summer 16, when you clicked into a field and selected FLS (Field Level Security) you only had options for Visible and Read Only.


There's been an update that changed the Visible and Read Only column to Read Access and Edit Access.


The functionality of the columns hasn't changed and are defined below:

  • No check in either box means the field will be hidden
  • Read Access only checked means the field will be viewable but not editable
  • Edit Access when checked will also automatically check Read Access and makes the field viewable as well as editable
