overriding/removing default fields on views

When the end user creates a view on contacts, they don't want some of the automatic fields displayed in the selected fields section. They want the title and contact owner alias selection removed from the default for all new views they created going forward.


How do I over-ride that setting?


the default fields are:



Account Name




Contact Owner Alias.


Each object has a set of default fields when creating a new list view. I did a cursory search, and found no way to alter the default list of fields, or even how those fields are determined. It's probably safe to say that this list of fields is not subject to customization. You could, however, remove the field from this list by completely removing a user's access to the field (via field level security), but that would probably cause more problems than it would solve.
