Some fields should be viewable in Directory but NOT editable by Members
There are valid reasons why some field(s) might be required to be visible for each member (in Directory) but not allowing the Member to edit that field(s). One example are site locations (like we use) where the physical location cannot be changed ever but the owner might sell to a new owner. Owner still cannot change the site #.
Same for Stock shares that purchased when a home is sold. That specific share # never changes.
We do not have Membership #s like other orgs (ours are share/site#) but I would assume these like Employee badge #s would not be editable.
I wish admins could dictate which fields can be edited and also which ones can be viewed. There are fields that Members should not be able to edit but can be viewed.
