Tried creating a validation rule as below,but i still can edit the suffix, salutation on page layout. how to restrict salutation,Suffix, do they have any api names for this or should i consider trigger for this?

AND( OR( ISCHANGED(FirstName), ISCHANGED(LastName) ), $Profile.Name = 'User' )

  • Do you just want to check salutation or first,lastname as well?
