Hi @Gina_Fedder :wave:

Thank you for reaching out and welcome to our community.

You can use the layout editor to customize each of these two forms - See Customize your creation and edition forms - User Guide

If you hide fields in the edit form it won’t impact your creation form.

Let me know if that helps!

Hi @louis,
Thank you for the quick response.
This did help with the creation form but it looks like (at least on our current version) the edit customization also impacts the detail view of a record. so if I go into the edit form and then click customize and hide specific fields, they are also hidden when I just click on a record to see its details. That is not the behavior we were looking for. We would still want to see the field. We just dont want it to be editable (but still creatable).
