Description of the need
One on of the Backdrop websites a customer wanted to see e-mail addresses of users without taking an additional step (going to Edit tab).
Unfortunately, there was no option on
/admin/config/people/manage/display/default to make the field appear on the View page, but it was fairly easy to satisfy such a requirement by implementing a custom template. However, I still wondered why such an option is not available via UI.
I'm totally ok if it is by special design not to make the value of e-mail address field available on the View page, however if the community members would share my curiosity why it could not be made available, then this feature request could have a chance.
