Field read-only for creator, editable for others

Hi All,

I am trying to implement one scenario as mentioed following.

There are certain fields on one object which should be read-only when a user is creating a record. Also, when he edits the records he owns, these fields should be read-only.

All other users should be able to modify those fields on that object while viewing and editing the records created by the other users.

I tried record type, permission set however it does not seem to be working the way I am expecting.Any idea how to proceed on this. 

Hello Ramesh,

I faced the same issue in past. I achived the same requirement by using custom development. You can also create the VF based detail and edit layout. According to current logged in user and owner of record you can restrict the fields editability.

You can make this by OWD settings

1.Create public group in which add the users whom to give permissions for edit and create.
2.Create  OWD make this field as read only
3.Go to sharing settings extend the functionality to read wite and give access to public group which u have created previously
