In your business, you may wish to hide certain fields depending on where the user has accessed CRM from. 

In this scenario, we are required to hide the Address Section when a user accesses CRM via their Mobile. 

N52 Formula Manager Solution

The Formula Manager solution works like this:

  • A formula of type 'ClientSide - Perform Action' will be created that will enact the bulk of the workload
  • The formula is triggered whenever an Account form is loaded
  • It will check to see is the current form is being accessed via a Mobile
  • If this is true, the formula will hide the Address field
