hide the lead field that was required


How can i hide the field named 'lead status' in one of the page layouts. This field typs is picklist and it was made as required for all the other page layouts. 


How can i remove this field in a particular page layout.

Please educate me on this



Thank you



Pretty sure thats not possible as it is a system required field.

Lead Status is required by default, so you can't hide it from a page layout.  


I ran into a similar issue before, so I just created a section (called System Fields or something) in the bottom of that particular page layout and put the field there.  

System fields are required and cannot be removed from Page layout. May be you could create a visualforce page and not add the lead source field after setting a default value for Lead Source.
