NewForm vs EditForm

Occasional Contributor

I have a newform.aspx with 3 fields showing and 12 fields hidden by going in the content type to hide them. How can I show all these hidden fields in editform.aspx?

 

Thanks.

If you just need to show/hide columns, it might be easier to use JSON formatting to hide fields at different times. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/list-form-conditional-show...

Hi @NMenB 

 

You can use below PnP PowerShell on each of the field to achieve this.

 

Connect-PnPOnline <spo-site-url>

$ctx = Get-PnPContext
$field = Get-PnPField -Identity <field-name> -List <list-name>

$field.SetShowInNewForm($false)
$field.SetShowInEditForm($true) 

$field.Update()
$ctx.ExecuteQuery()

 

Thank you for your reply. I will try this one out.
