Compact Layout is ignoring Field Accessibility rules?

The Amount field is hidden for a number of profiles in our org however it appears in the Compact Layout. Any ideas?

@Norah what is set in field-level security for that field on respective profile? Also verify that if a user having some permission set assigned, that will might be having permission for that field and object.

Hi Norah,
If you are talking about Amount Field In Opportunity then in System_Default Compact Layout Amount is added which can not be changed. What you can do is clone that Compact Layout and create a new one with Amount field not selected and then assign it to Primary Layout.

Let me know if you have further queries.

Are you want to hide Amount field then you can control it from Field level security. Go to the field and click on field-level security and hide from there for respective profiles.

Hi Meghna, I have my reasons for not going down that route. 

Hi Pritam, have done that already but it still appears

Hi Pritam, yes it was the pesky FLS that was messing it up! I was looking at Field Accessibility - D'oh!
