Delete a Record Field

You can delete a field from the registration; however, we recommend simply making the field invisible instead. This means that you will not lose any information in the event that you decide you do need the field. See the ‘Special Attributes’ subsection for this feature. If you truly wish to delete a field, follow the steps for adding a field and select ‘Delete’ rather than ‘Add’ on step 5.
