Reproducing the Issue

You are able to enter a value in Amt (goalResultsPayoutAmountTotal) field for employee which is Read-only:



It should not be possible since field is configured as read-only:



This is working as expected.

The feature is to provide the ability to either edit in % or in amt. So right now, if %age is configured as editable, the amt will become editable.

As shown in the screenshot the %age is set to Read-only is No:



If you really want it to be read-only, a possible workaround would be:

  1. Create a read-only custom field pointing to the amt column
  2. Hide Amt column in form
