Can a 'standard field' type be set by subscriber org

In a managed package deployment can the subscriber org change the field type of a Standard field in a custom object.




No they can't


Is there any other way for achieving the following:


I want to give the subscriber org the Option to make a 'Standard field' in a custom object be either 'autonumbered' or 'text field'. Can code be written to achieve this.


Secondly, if it is a custom field in a custom object can you give the subscriber the option to select between the two field types.




No, the field type of a packaged custom field can't be changed post install.


I'd suggest having both fields and adding logic to your package to choose between the two.
