Thanks for the feedback. We don’t have any plans for column-level permissions at this time, but I’ll leave the UV item active here in case folks want to add further comments.

My experience is that fine-grained row-level permissions causes enough trouble with limited access scopes all by itself. At our shop we avoid it as much as we're able using other strategies. Adding true field-level permissions would only aggravate that issue.
I recommend using client-side scripting to query the user permissions and to dynamically show/hide fields. That's what we do and it works fine.
If you needed more rigid security, separate out those fields into another list based on roles and again use client-side scripting to dynamically query and add those fields to your form.
Once you've configured these things once you'll have the basis of a reusable library for doing it again and again.Mario T. Lanza supported this idea ·
