Hiding fields in a SharePoint list

Hi guys,

Today I will show another simple task, that is how to hide a field in a SharePoint list.

So, let’s start it:

Access the site and select the list that you want to hide some fields.

For example Risk List.

Open the Risk List and go to the List Settings.


Now click on Advanced Settings and click “Yes” to Allow Management of Content Types and click OK.



Now will appear a Content Types for the “Project Site Risk”. Click to open the field list



Now, just select the column that you want to hide. For example: I would like to hide MitigationPlan, ContingencyPlan, TriggerDescription and Trigger.

Select Mitigation Plan and set the option to Hidden (Will not appear in forms) and click OK.


Do the same for the other fields.

Now when you create a new Risk, the items you have hidden will not appear.


You can also change the fields to Required.

See you
