Hi all,

I have following scenario:

- I have created view on document library with folders and documents.

- I would like to hide some columns for folders, but make them visible for documents. 

Is this possible in sharepoint online?

 

Thank you,

Peter

Well, you could try to do this with different view...but definitively this is something you cannot do in a single view

Although this thread is a few month's old, you could always create a custom Content Type for the folders.  You can also tag folders in Quick Edit view with metadata values.

 

Take a look at 'Option 2' on this SharePoint Maven page:

https://sharepointmaven.com/4-ways-to-tag-folders-with-metadata-in-sharepoint/

 

This way you could filter/create a new view to hide certain columns.  That may work.

 

Be aware that folder metadata does not propagate to the files underneath - so you can end up with different metadata values for the folder & the files within it.
