Hi

I am formatting a SharePoint List Form following the Microsoft documentation Configure the list form | Microsoft Docs

Both the Form Header & Footer work well. However the Body does not! :sad:  It simply won't show when "Preview" is pressed and I get no errors on my JSON (copied below). I have tried to create more sections with less fields, but still - simply nothing happens! No error message nothing, when I click "Preview".

If I click "Save" it simply closes the form and when I open it again the JSON is gone. 

 

Can someone help?

I want to avoid creating a new form using PowerApps Integration as the changes we want are quite simple!

 

{

    "sections": [

        {

            "displayname": "Role",

            "fields": [

                "Resource Role"

            ]

        },

        {

            "displayname": "Details",

            "fields": [

                "Months",

                "Min Rate",

                "Max Rate",

                "Line Manager",

                "Project",

                "Geography",

                "Charge To"

            ]

        },

        {

            "displayname": "Contract",

            "fields": [

                "Contract Terms to Add"

            ]

        }

    ]

}

I am seeing the exact same thing - I have customized forms on other sites with no issue but it's now showing up where the body, header and footer all just disappear on any new sites.
Hi, it seems to be, for me anyway a temporary issue, or worse an unstable one from Microsoft :( ! With the code above it is now working (for a few days with no issues), with absolutely nothing done from my end ... a mystery!
Thanks for the update, I'll just keep trying and hope it's a transitory issue..

Solution

I have observed this behavior as well on my SharePoint site. Try below things after "saving" the JSON in body section:

  • Refresh the page (hard refresh: Ctrl + F5 in windows)
  • Clear browser cache

It worked for me after hard refresh and I also think that this is a temporary issue from Microsoft side (maybe because of latest updates in SharePoint online).
