I'd like to untoggle "Save record changes automatically" in a particular layout for just one user.
Can that be done?
Can you explain why you want to do this? It represents a fairly significant change in your interface design.
You could duplicate the layout and navigate this one user to the different layout.
"You could duplicate the layout and navigate this one user to the different layout."
This did occur to me and what I chose to do.
There might be a way to get this behavior change without changing the layout setting (since we can't do that dynamically).
I'm speculating as I type, but I'm wondering if the OnRecordCommit trigger might not be able to script this behavior for you. The script could detect the user(s) where you want this added confirmation dialog and it could use Show Custom Dialog or a card window to ask for confirmation and use ExitScript [false] to cancel the commit if they select No as their response.
