How can I hide Columns in New/Edit Form for contributors. Is there a option to do that. I'm using SP 2013 online & SP Designer.

  • use Client Side Rendering through JSLink for the form.

Client-Side Rendering/JS Link documentation?


With the help of "SPServices" you can get the current user name . Add the users you want to hide a column in specific group. If the current user present in particular group hide the field using jQuery.

Add Content editor webpart in Newform/Editform.aspx and place the below script

<script type="text/javascript" src="/sites/test/Script/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/sites/test/Script/jquery.SPServices.min.js">

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
operation: "GetGroupCollectionFromUser",
userLoginName: $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser(),
async: false,
completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
var xml = xData.responseXML.xml;
if(xml.search('SharePoint Group') != -1)

$('nobr:contains("Column to hide")').closest('tr').hide();
