SharePoint List Form Header Fields

Copper Contributor

Hi All,

First post and if anyone can help it would be appreciated. 


I have a SharePoint list where there are some columns that I do not want users to edit. As column level restrictions do not appear to be available I was looking at a work around:


Using the JSON formatting provided by Microsoft I included the relevant fields in the Header. This all works fine until I remove the columns from the form which also removes the fields from the header. 


If anyone has any ideas it would appreciated.

I am starting to realise this is a thing, just as you run out of time/patience/enthusiasm for a challenge so post it on a discussion board, you find a solution...


My work around was to keep the field in the form body but to use a simple conditional formula to hide the field if it had any data in it. Hope that works for others.
