JSON with multiple content types in Sharepoint List

Occasional Contributor

Hi guys - I'm pretty new to JSON so pls go easy if this is a stupid question.


I have created a Sharepoint list with 5 content types. Currently, when I select New -> [content type], the form is simply a vertical stack of the columns which apply to that content type. 


I'd like to use JSON to edit each form - but the columns etc are obv different for each. 


Can I have different JSON for each content type? Thanks

Yes, you can have different JSON for each content type. Open the new form for ContentType1 > Configure Layout. Then the other content types and do the same.

Here's Microsoft official documentation related to form customizations using JSON (header, footer, body layout): Configure the list form
