I've created a custom object, customObjectA. One of those fields in the object has a Account(lookup) and another text field, lets call it fieldA. I'd like to have fieldA appear on the Account layout page. Is it possible to do so? Do I need to create a lookup field or a formulary on the Account object to the customObjectA to display the data?
The reason I'm creating a custom object for this field is because I'd like the value of fieldA to be unique on a user-account level and not just on an account level. For instance account John Smith fieldA's value will be different based on the user who signs in.
