my users are able to change lead status via inline edit, how will i restrict them?
Option 1: Inline editing can be turned off, but it will be turned off for everyone.
Goto to Setup>User Interface>Enable Inline Editing.
Option 2: Create validation rules that enforce data rules required to move a status. These rules will be enforced on a lead page and on list view during inline editing.
I want my users to use inline edit but i don't want them to change lead status from view via inline edit since it will bypass my workflow for qualifying lead and there are some business rules associated with lead status. I am wondering that user will not be able to change status from view only from edit page.
