I have a column which uses a lookup to another library. I need the user to be able to make multiple selections based on this lookup, however the problem I have is that this library contains hundreds of items. So when this is displayed as a multi check-box selection to the user it looks rather messy. Is there an alternative way to display choice/lookup columns to the user when multiple selections is turned on?

Using SP365.

Thanks Sean

  • Can you share the screen shot of that messed up column. – Asad Refai Oct 16 '15 at 13:07

What you see is what you get. If you want a different UX, you can change how columns are displayed using Client Side Rendering (=JavaScript programming).

Check out the Chrome Browser plugin Cisar, this makes CSR programming a breeze (but you still need to know JavaScript)
