Changing form layout by users

In Ax, users can change the layout of forms without any knowledge of programming. This can be done by any user, without writing a single line of code.
Users can for example hide/unhide predefined fields, change the sequence of fields and so on. All these customizations are user specific.

If for some reason you want to limit this functionality, you have various options.
For example, you can change the settings for a specific form, by changing the properties of the design node of the form. Set the property AllowUserSetup to No, so that no user modification to the layout is allowed.

If a specific user is not able to hide/unhide fields or to make changes to the form setup (of any form), you might want to check security setup. Make sure access to the key Admin \ Misc \ SysFormPersonalization is switched on.
