Posted By:Sunil Yadav       Posted Date: May 26, 2010    Points: 25    Category: SharePoint    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

In this article i am going to show how we can get rid of the column.

The column Title  is a reserved word in SharePoint. You can rename this column to something else, but It can lead to unexpected behavior of your application. But there is a way by which you can hide this column.

Step 1. Select the list for which you want to hide or remove title column.
Let's work it out with "Tasks" list.

Step 2. Click on Settings and select List Settings. Once on the settings page for your list, click on the advanced settings link as shown below.

Step 3. Here you need to set "Allow management of content types" to "Yes".

Step 4. Now you will see the Content Types section. Select the content type for which you want to edit "title" Column. Click on the content type name which is Task.

Step 5. Select the Title column from the column list.

Step 6. In the Column Setting section Select the status of this column to "Hidden (Will not appear in forms)" and click OK.
 That's all.Now you will not see title column .
