Hello,
 
I have a Sharepoint list that looks like this:
444456464_0-1645103256406.png

 

My boss asked me to use a "Content Type" in order to hide the "Edit item" and "Workflow" columns in the add/modify item form. :

However, I have no idea how to do it this with a "Content Type". Can you help me please? :(
Thanks in advance !

Did they maybe mean that in the settings of the list?
** Forgot to mention you need to go to Advance Settings and allow for management of content types first. Then you'll see the content type in the settings. **


There you can see the content type. Click it to see the columns within the content type. Select the column you are looking to hide. In the next screen you'll see the column settings allows you to hide the column and it will not appear in the form.
