Apply view only for a specific folder

Occasional Contributor

Hello everyone

I have a folder within a default document library which is connected to a team in teams. So, in this folder I have documents that must be sorted by its number in the file name. 

Example:

  • File_1
  • File_2
  • ...

First, I figured out that it isn't possible to sort numeric, if the number is only in the filename. SharePoint will then sort it like:

  • File_1
  • File_11
  • File_2
  • ...

Very frustrating but okay. So, I created a numeric column that can be used to sort the files properly. But what I noticed is that the column is now visible in the whole document library :(

So now my question:

Is it possible to apply the column to only being visible in this specific folder where I need it? I tried it with different views and so on, but it seems that this cannot be achieved.

Thanks for your help.
