Sharing rule for contacts

Hi All,

 

I have written a sharing rule for contacts. It allows users of  role AE to read/write recodrs of same role AE.

Users are able to edit certain fields but not Contact Owner field.

 

Criteria                                            Shared With                     Contact

 

Owner in Role AE                         Role: AE                             Read/Write

 

What should I do to allow edit permission on Contact Owner field. Am I missing something?

 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

Regards,

Alok

Check the Field Level Security of the Owner Field on the Contact Object. That should not be Read Only.

Hi, 



Check if the New Owner have "Transfer Record”. Also , Users with the "Modify All Data" permission can transfer ownership of all records.

Refer Changing Ownership Guide for More details , If you are using partner Portals then you may require to have a look over this
