1 Answer 1


As far as i remember that is not possible.

A workaround could be the following. Create a custom Field :

  • Name: Record Owner
  • API: Record_Owner__c
  • Type: Formula
  • Return Type: Text
  • Formula: HYPERLINK("/" & OwnerId , Owner.FirstName &" "& Owner.LastName , '_self')

Then swap out the standard owner field, for the custom formula on the necessary PageLayout(s).

Note: This will only work, if the Owner is a User, not a Queue. If you have a queue as an owner, you'll have to modify it.
