Custom Fields Permissions

When creating custom fields for ideas or features we need ability to select which user group has rights to edit it. We created a field named owners, with multiple select options from which a product owner can select several names of people that own the idea in our company internally.

    Hi Antonio, thanks for the request. As you may know, we currently have 4 levels of user permissions (Product owners, contributors, reviewers and viewers), which different levels of access. Adjusting user permissions would be one way to do this (ie., Reviewers and Viewers do not have access to custom fields).

    One workaround (outside of the software) is to implement the process that only the specified "owners" are allowed to make edits to areas that you've mentioned.

    At the moment with our current priorities, we do not have plans to add another level of permissions around editing rights.

    The work around process is not feasible for a large company.

    I just need to restrict access to one custom field, all the others are important all permissions to access. The specific custom field I am trying to restrict for Ideas is the concept of Priority which only I, the Product Manager, should be able to set
