Adding Descriptions to Fields

Microsoft

Is it possible to add a description to the field in a custom list using Add-PnPField?  Or does anyone have a way of programmatically adding a description after the field has been created.

Hi  @Matt Munslow,

 

The description seems to be missing.

 

Maybe a bit of a heavy way of doing this but you could use

 

Get-PnPProvisioningTemplate -Out test.xml

 

Then update the xml by editing it manually

 

Apply-PnPProvisioningTemplate -Path test.xml

 

I'm assuming that you prefer to stick to PowerShell. 

 

This works:

$field = Get-PnPField -List Risks -Identity Likelihood

$field.Description

$field.Description="This works"

$field.Update()
