I want to edit the column property of "location" in my list, to make it required when submit the form. But when I click list setting, select "location" column,this is all I got:

"location" column setting page: "location" column setting page

List setting page: List setting page

Advanced setting page: Advanced setting page

So, how do I make this column required when submit the form?

  1. Go to Advanced Settings and Enable the Allow management of content types.

  2. Now you will see the content types associated with the list under the Settings section.

  3. Click on Item.

  4. Select the column.

  5. Check the Required radio button.

  • Thanks for the help. But "allow management of content types" is already enabled.

  • Really sorry but I'm not sure what you mean here, I've added more screen shot to show my current set up. Even "Allow management of content types" is enabled I still only see two lines in my column setting page.

You may have to do this in Powershell.

$site = Get-SPSite -Identity "http://sharepoint/" #change
$web= $site.OpenWeb()   
$spList = $web.GetList("/Lists/CustomList") #change 
$field = $spList.Fields["Location"]
