Customizing standard objects

I want to fully customize a standard object, such as Contacts: add delete fields and change their attributes.

How do I go about doing it?

 

- Do I need to duplicate the object? - if so, is there a way to clone it?

 

       Thank you,

Hi

 

It is not possible to clone a Standard Object,you need to create a Custom object ana your fields...

You won't be able to delete standard fields on standard objects. You can add new custom fields to the standard objects and then configure the page layouts to use those custom field. Or just create your own Custom object and define the specific fields and attributes you require.

You can add fieds to any standard object can manage all the attributes as per your liking

, you can some edit some attributes of standard fields as well but you can not delete standard fields.

 

Please let me know what is your requirement

Thank you.

 

To create a new object, can I clone a standard object and use it as a base?

Thank you.

 

I need to make changes beyond addition of fields and it seems that I will need to create a custom object.

Since this is very labor intensive, can I clone a standard object and use it as a base of a custom object?
