I created a site column in a Content Type that's used by a List. The site column is listed with others from the same Source (Content Type). After that, the new site column is nowhere to be found: I expect to see it when creating a new item, but nothing. How do I get the new column to surface in the new/edit/update list forms?

  • Are you using a custom infopath form or the Out of the box Sharepoint list form? – Noman Farooqi Jun 1 '17 at 21:14
  • I am using an out-of-the-box SharePoint List form. – Msindvo Jun 5 '17 at 13:24

Have you set this content type as the default content type to the list ? Go to list settings - advanced settings - > Allow management of content types - > Yes Go back to list settings - > change the default content type to your custom content type. Now try adding/editing the list item.

  • Yes, the content type IS is the default content type for this particular list, we've been using it for several years. I added a site column to said content type like all others, nothing special about it. – Msindvo Jun 5 '17 at 13:27
