Removing Title field from data entry menu from Lists

Copper Contributor

I've created a SharePoint list and added my columns that I need.

I don't need the Title column so I've made it non mandatory and removed it from the view.

 

However when I go to add data the Title field is still there?

How do I remove this? It's easy for me to ignore, however when I pass this task down I don't want someone getting confused.

 

Thank you

Louise

@LouiseAspman I assume you mean it's still showing in the list form. To remove it click the New button in the top left, then in the form click the pen & paper icon at the top right, select Edit columns. The columns in your list will be shown and you can de-select the Title column then click Save. Then just click the x in the top right to close the panel. You can also re-order the columns and change the layout of the form.

Hi, Rob, and thanks for your effort. When I try this solution, all the fields are grayed out and cannot be deselected.

Can you think of a reason why?

 

Kindly,

@tpalongi if they are required columns in your list then you won't be able to de-select them from the form.

@tpalongi You can make the Title column non-required by following the steps:

  1. Go to your SharePoint list
  2. Click on Settings (gear) icon from top right corner and select List settings
  3. From list settings page, scroll down to Columns section and click on Title column. It will open column settings page for Title column
  4. Set below option to No and click OK button at the bottom page to save the changes: ganeshsanap_0-1692702538308.png
  5. Then you can hide the Title column from list form by following the steps given by @Rob_Elliott in above responses.

I wasn't trying to manufacture the List from within SP, but I'll give it a shot! Thank you.

@tpalongi Even if you are creating a list from "Microsoft Lists", you can follow the same steps from Microsoft Lists "list" to make the Title column optional.
