Recently we’ve added more options to control user interface appearance. We’ve moved “Show Tab” option from table record access to new “User Interface” section on “Table Properties” screen. Additionally, visibility of “New”, “Edit” and “Add Similar” buttons is controlled there.
Ability to hide “New” and “Edit” buttons can be used in cases when you want to prevent users from creating/editing records via default interface and intend to do it with help of workflow actions or custom buttons.
We also added ability to hide Print/Export/Send buttons on views. While it can’t protect data from stealing, hiding these buttons may help to complicate it.
You may also configure user interface settings from particular role screen – just click on role name link. In that case you’ll be able to configure role’s user interface settings for all tables in one click.
