We are working on a sharepoint 2013 Team site collection. and inside this team site i have added many tracking lists. now our customer asked us that they want to hide the Title field from all the lists. now i know that i can do these 2 steps:-
- inside the related Content Types to set the
Titlecolumn as hidden.
- also to go to the site column named
Titleand set it as "Optional".
so in this case users can add tracking items without the need to enter a title.
Now when i did this i noted that i will be facing these issues:-
- many build-in features will be lost. such as the ability to have a field inside the list view named
Title (linked to item with edit menu)which is not available inside any other column types.this field allow use to have a menu to edit, view, approve/reject items..
- Also sharepoint search rely on the item title.
so can anyone advice how i need to approach hiding the items' Title field, should this be avoided ?
