Currently to open a file you have to click on name. Is there a way to open this file by clicking on another column instead of name? Thanks

  • Open the AllItems.aspx page for the specific list.

  • Search for the tag

  • List item LinkToItem="TRUE" to whichever column you want the link:

    <ViewFields> <FieldRef Name="Attachments"/> <FieldRef Name="LinkTitle"/><br/> <FieldRef Name="linkThisColumn" LinkToItem="TRUE"/> <FieldRef Name="data_x0020_column"/> <FieldRef Name="Another_x0020_column"/> </ViewFields>

Change Title (linked to item with edit menu) to different column

  • This does not open the file. It oddly takes you to a location displaying the Name, Title, Doc ID and other column names. Commented Aug 5, 2014 at 17:09
