I use Sharepoint Designer 2013.

Created a new sharepoint website in sharepoint online, created a custom list within and wanted to create a new form. But sharepoint simply does not save the change. But it does not tell why.

Could not save list changes to server

Do I need specific permissions? How to enable detailed debugging? Do you know why that occurs?

I already checked this answer, but for me there are no current data sets and no custom columns. It is a new list and a new sharepoint website.

  • check if you need this permission...support.office.com/en-us/article/…

  • @Tom I don't know. It was a question more than a year ago. I am not sure if I have resolved it. I don't work with Sharepoint Designer anymore.
