    I want to remove fields from entities leads, and contacts. Fields such as number of employees, birthdays, social accounts etc. I understand this is not something that can be done through the UI. How would I go about doing this?
    Thanks,
    Harry

    What I did for now is removing the system fields from the form (keeping them in db).

    MyExtensionType.php

    $fields = ['middleName', 'nameSuffix', 'assignedTo', 'source'];
    foreach($fields as $field) {
    if ($builder->has($field)) {
    $builder->remove($field);
    }
    }

    remove the fields in update.html.twig

    Hi guys,

    We are going to make these fields extended, so they could be edited/removed from the UI as other custom fields. No clear timeline yet though.

    Hi,
    Is there some news about this.
    I want to remove fields from B2B customers.

    I want to remove shipping address. I don’t use it.

    How I do it?

    Thanks.

    Hi Marcelo,

    This item won’t be included into our 1.9 release but we will try to push for it in the next one, when we will address our Sales Pipeline.

    For now, these fields are system so you cannot remove them—just ignore the fields you don’t need.

    Hi Artem,

    any news here? Our customer also wants to focus the call center employees on the important fields.

    Hi Sebastian,

    No news so far. We’ve reworked Contact and Lead entities in the 1.10 release but we didn’t make a lot of fields extended.

    Has anyone had luck removing the fields? Did the above solution work? There is just so much redundancy and it is complicated for smaller organizations.

    Hi John,

    I absolutely agree with you. Our callcenter agents are a little bit overwhelmed by all the fields they get. It would be nice to have a tutorial how to reduce the fields as long as the forms are not editable.

    Hi John,

    I don’t know how to message you within the forum. Could you please mail me under sebastian.wilhelm.info@7thsense.de? I’m still interested in your solution.

    I’d love to hide a few system entities as well.
