Manually Override a Field

Is it possible to manually override a value in a calculated field? I am using a calculated field to automatically generate a value based on calculations.  In some cases, the user will need to manually override the entry by directly inputting the value in the calculated field.

Hello Tony,

As you might already know, the Calculated field is one of the few fields that you cannot enable even with the javascript, as it says on the following page:

 kintone developer network - Record Edit Event - Enable/Disable field edits
 https://developer.kintone.io/hc/en-us/articles/213149017-Record-Edit-Event#enable_disable_fields

So, in order to manually enter a value in a calculated field, you need to create your own custom calculation in a field other than the Calculated field, such as the Text field.

To create a custom calculation in a field like the Text field, check the following page:

 kintone developer network - Using custom calculations
 https://developer.kintone.io/hc/en-us/articles/115003639467-Using-custom-calculations

Just make sure to consider how not to have the calculation to occur when you are manually entering a value.

I hope this helps.
