Is it possible to add additional column info to the form title. For example, when we open a list item to view it's content along the top in the title is the SharePoint List + item Title. I'd like to also include the item's reference number (which is in a separate column). This is so when reviewing it I don't have to keep scrolling back to this info.

I am using SharePoint 2010

If you are using Sharepoint Designer Open your form in advanced mode Goto below section .You will get this in first 1-2 lines .

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server">
<SharePoint:listformpagetitle runat="server"/>
</asp:Content>

Remove

 <SharePoint:listformpagetitle runat="server"/>

Add whatever you want like below

If you want a value of a column, set the column name in the Property attribute

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server">
<SharePoint:ListItemProperty runat="server" Property="Status"/>
</asp:Content>

If you want a constant text

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server">
Welcome Page
</asp:Content>

Note: As a safety measure please try this on a test form first
