Add Created by column to List form

Occasional Contributor

Do you know if there is a way to add the Created by of the New list item to the form? It's useful to see this when editing the form or sending a comment to the Creator. Then I don't have to close the form to go look at the Created by column.

If you are referring to an item in a SharePoint list this, I believe, is already a standard field in the list. A snapshot from one of my list for example shows Created By as a standard field.

To confirm this find your list settings and check out the form fields listed on this page. There should already be a Created By listed.

@tomscrace This is a default behavior of SharePoint modern experience list forms & you cannot add the Created/Created By/Modified/Modified By/ID fields to list forms using SharePoint out of the box capabilities.


You need to edit the list form using Power Apps to add such fields on list forms.
