Field-based editing restrictions for non-techies


I need to make sure that the non-techies in our office can work in the databases and not risk screwing things up. But it apppears Filemaker only allows editing restrictions on the user level. So it's all or nothing. Either the user can edit everything or they can't edit anything.

I'd love to be able to just restrict certain fields from being edited. It would also be useful to force a dialog everytime the field is edited that proclaims "ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO MAKE CHANGES TO FIELD? YES / NO."

Or if anyone else has creative ways to protect against data corruption in mixed company, please let me know.
