[Vtigercrm-developers] assigned to field read only in profile?

I forced that in the database to try it for a client and the whole 
edit/save process broke. It is because if it is read only it does not 
appear on the edit form but the save process expects this field to be 
there. So you would have to modify the database directly and then modify 
the code to support not having that field in sight.

I may be wrong as I didn't dedicate much more time than a quick test 
modifying the database directly but the sensation i got is that 
"assigned to" is an important field which shouldn't be played with.

I would suggest though a javascript/jquery hack to disable the field 
dynamically, that may be easier....  not sure though...
