SharePoint Online - Validation Settings missing from a list

Occasional Contributor

Hi All, I'm building a SPO list, and i want to use some validations in some columns, but I've noticed that when i go to List settings > under General there is no Validation Settings option.


Any ideas how to make it to appear?



Thank you for the help.

@Radoslavov91 What is the template type of your list? Is it general/custom list or other type like tasks/issues/announcements?

Also, do you have Full Control permissions on list?

Hi ganeshsanap,

it's a blank list (no template is used), and I'm the only global admin for the tenant so i have full control.

@Radoslavov91 Is this team site or communication site?


Did you deactivate any site or site collection feature?

Since the site where Validation settings option is missing is a Team site, I've tried to check in another site from the same type, and it is visible there for a list, Check other site and for some it is there, for others not. So it seems that it is not a global option that needs to be enabled but something on a site collection level.
Any ideas what that might be?
