I have a problem using JSLink. The goal is to color in red, orange, green the priority field. For information, I followed step-by-step the tutorial given by Microsoft.

  1. In Site Features, I've ACTIVATED the 'SharePoint Server Publication'

  2. In Site Settings, I click on 'Master Page'. It send me to the master page gallery (on site collection). I added my .js, following this tutorial, with the following information:

    • JavaScript display template
    • target type = View
    • standalone = Override
    • target scope = /site_collection/etc/etc/mysite/mylistview.aspx

    And finally 'Publish' to validate.

  3. In my list view, I click to modify the web part, and under Miscellaneous, in JS field, I add the link to the JS file in the masterpage. Ie, /site_collection/etc/masterpage/colorpriority.js

  4. After that, I close the file, but nothing happens !

  • If you edit the web part after setting the JSLink property, does it stick? Or does it revert? If it sticks, try running IE Dev tools when loading the page, and see if any errors are occurring. And can you share code?
