I'd like to disable some custom field fields, because we no longer want users to enter that data. But then I can no longer see the field in report filters. Is there another way I can get that data out without re-enabling the field?
I would also like to disable some field options. Is the data preserved? Assuming so (maybe I shouldn't) how can I report or export it after it's disabled?
Thanks for the suggestions - however, I'm new to CiviCRM, what is CSS? I think being able to change the visibility in the field when inputting would help, but you'd still have to have it visible for reporting. (Other systems I have used just have a 'selectable' option tick box for each entry in the pick list - but this only controls new choices in a pick list, as all options are available for reporting.)
