Hi everyone,

 

Hope you can help. I'm trying to create a library view, using the 'grouping' option and by using a category 'choice' column that I created. However, within the category column, you can select multiple options.

 

Can I create a view using the category column to group? Or will it not work because I have enabled the option for multiple selections?

 

Thanks!

Luisa

Hi @Ldavidson - to create a view grouped by a column, it can only be a single select column, not multi-select. You can read more here: https://sharepointmaven.com/4-ways-to-create-cool-custom-views-in-sharepoint/
