Hide a Non-Statutory Section or Field

How to Hide a Non-Statutory Section or Field from your Template.

Please make sure you have read our Overview page so you understand how your Template works.

 

To hide a non-statutory Section or Field from your Template, you will firstly need to open the Template you wish to edit. 

 


 

Please Note:

Whilst some sections may not be statutory to record on your Single Central Record, they may be statutory elsewhere. If you are unsure about this, please refer to our Safeguarding Guide and your Organisation's policies. 

 


 

Visibility Eye Icons

 

You can hide a non-statutory Section or Field from your Template using the Visibility Eye Icons as below:

 

  • Visible - Section/Field will show on the Profile Type

 

  • Hidden - Section/Field will not show on the Profile Type

 

Please Note:

If the Visibility eye icon is greyed out, this indicates that the Section or Field you are trying to edit is Statutory for that profile Type, and cannot be switched off or amended. 

If you are part of a Federation it may also mean that this field has been locked at the Federation level and cannot be edited.
