Editable Fields


Audience: Administrators & Read/Write Users Edition: Enterprise


A Plan Owner can control which fields are editable within a given plan. This provides better data quality within a planning exercise (e.g. all fields can be displayed but only some can be modified). Reference the Updating Plans topic for more information on how team member can update field values within a plan.


If you are using custom metrics, ensure that you add each field used to create the custom metric as an additional Editable Field.
