Is there a way using SharePoint 2013 to allow ALL users to see the column, but only allow other individuals to be able to make edits. I know that I can change the permissions to "view only". But there are instances when they should be able to edit other columns on the form.

I was thinking this could be achieved by creating a content type and changing the permissions. This may not be the best route. Can anyone help me with this?


You cannot do that out-of-the-box. Take a look at this thread - there was an extensive discussion on this -Approaches to hide certain list columns from certain users groups, inside the add/edit/views form & inside list views without using 3rd party tools. It might be too expensive to implement, tho.
