Updated Feature: Conditionally show or hide columns in a SharePoint list or library form

From Microsoft Corporation

MC211640, Stay Informed, Published date: Apr 30, 2020

Users will be able to show or hide columns in a SharePoint list or library form based on a value in another column.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 63518.

When this will happen

  • This is gradually rolling out to Targeted release customers from the end of April to early May 2020.
  • This is gradually rolling out to Standard release customers in mid-May 2020.

How this will affect your organization

This is a new conditional expression capability for configuring list or library forms. It builds upon existing ability to show or hide columns in a list or library form.

As soon as the feature is rolled out to your organization, list and library users will be able to begin editing conditional formulas to show or hide columns in the list or library form. The formula is made up of equations that perform conditional checks on values in a list or library. For example, you could hide a column for FOO based on values calculated in column FOO.

New edit option

The new option, Edit conditional formula, will be available from the more options menu (…) in the Edit columns list form pane.
What you need to do to prepare for the change

You’ll want to notify list or library users in your organization and update your user documentation and training.
