Now my requirement is User A changed the status is prospect, it will not show to User B.so, How to retrict the record field value when i change to prospect. can you pls give me any ideas...

Since, both the users A and B, share the same profile, so Field level security will not work here.

Both the users can view the field. Only way to restrict record field value when you change to prospect, is to use Validation Rule.

  • create a validation rule and throw the error during save. If you face any issues then edit your question with issues. Commented Aug 10, 2017 at 16:19
