Sometimes you are faced with problems that you can not understand. Now I have a hidden column inside my Issue tracking list, which is used to store a series of string to be read by the list workflow. Now I set a default value for the column such as "ABC", and I set it as a hidden field, so user will not be able to modify its value or see it. But the problem is that if admin users change the default value of the hidden field from the "List Option>> List Setting >> Columns >> click on the hidden column", then its type inside the content type will be changed from hidden to optional and the field will appear inside the New and edit forms, so can any one advice on this please? Is there a way to prevent the hidden column from being set as optional when its default value is changed ?
I have the following problem inside my team site:
- I set a site column as hidden from the list content type.
- then I modify the column at the list level, where I changed its default value.
- then after that the column will be set as optional instead of hidden at the list content type.
So can anyone advice on this ? How can I remove this behavior ?
