If you lower that user’s permission level to “Edit only”, instead of “Creator” or “Owner”, then they wouldn’t be able to create new select options. They’ll still be able to select existing options though.
Here’s some more info about Airtable permission levels: https://support.airtable.com/hc/en-us/articles/202887099-Permissions
Thanks for your reply. The use case is a public form that I invite unregistered people to fill out so I don’t have any control over permissions. This problem gets worse as people contribute to the form because each answer becomes part of the default selections.
Again, I hope I’m just missing a setting or something… Leaving a select field open like this is the exception compared to excel, access, fieldbook, google sheets, etc. Those programs don’t allow users to change the options by default - only when the owner explicitly gives such permission.
Aren’t others running into trouble with this? How are you working around it?
