Dynamically show/hide/deactivate fields to create smart SharePoint forms!
|Column Permissions App is part of KWizCom Forms App std. edition
With the Column Permissions App you can control the visibility of specific list form fields in the New, Edit and View item forms. This app also enables you to hide views from the list views and to hide or disable columns in the Quick Edit view.
|Dynamically show/hide/disable fields||Easily hide columns from views|
|Easily Disable Fields in the Quick Edit View|
Dynamically hiding/disabling fields is done by setting up logic rules. This is done by using the Column Permissions app settings page:
This way you can turn your SharePoint list forms into dynamic, smart forms that display only the relevant fields according to the current user and context.
This is probably the biggest gap with SharePoint forms: they are generic and have no context.
In real life, a form used by different users, or when used at different points in time, should display different fields.
We all got used to working with SharePoint lists and document libraries. It is only natural to expect these list forms (New, Edit, View) to include all required web form features, instead of making us buy and learn a seperate Forms technology such as InfoPath or any other external Forms services.
The Column Permissions App is part of KWizCom Forms App, which allows SharePoint/O365 customers to keep using the well-known list forms by turning them into powerful & dynamic web forms. This way there's no new technology to learn and deploy, simply keep using the same SharePoint list forms that now can include all the missing web form features.
