From the Administration Menu, click on Database Manager > Show/Hide shared fields
Note that this article is about showing or hiding shared fields en masse. This has nothing to do with changing the status of shared fields on an individual bases.
Every subject on Pupil Tracking must have the shared fields included in their field list. However, shared fields can be hidden from subjects who do not wish to see them.
The department DofE might be created to allow Duke of Edinburgh award data to be stored. As DofE is not an academic subject it does not need to view or use shared fields.
By hiding shared fields from subjects it is assumed that they are not academic subjects and as such will not appear in any comparisons or reports that use shared fields. Subjects with hidden shared fields will also not see the Active Campaigns menu on their homepage and thus will not be prompted to complete a campaign.
