Record Type records restrict visibility

Hi,

 

We have 3 recordtypes on Account object. we would like to restrict to view one record type records for all the users except system admin.

 

If a user have a "View all" permission even though they should not be able to view these records.

 

can we do this?

 

Thanks

Hi Nehaa,

 

You can create a custom profile and only assign record types to this profile which you want the user to be able to access records related to.

thank you so much for the reply.

but we would like to have sys admin to access these records but not any other profile user. this means we are trying to override "view all" permission too. Is this is possible?

Record types are related to page layouts right?

if we hide it at the recordtype level, we will be able to restrict the users to create a new record of this record type but what about the existing records or upcoming records with "specific record type" that will be created by sys admin? how can we restrict the access for them?


Any thoughts?

Yes Neha,

 

If a user does not have access to record type - he/she will not be able to see the records associated to that record type.

 

yes gain, Record types can govern the page layout which is shown to the user accessing it.
