I've been dealing with SharePoint for a short while now and looking at many questions new admins, devs and users have it seems a number of them are related to the Title column that comes standard with new lists.
- Some answers suggest renaming the title field in the definition.
- Some answers suggest renaming the title field per list
- Some answers suggest hiding the column.
- I have seen one answer suggesting taking off the Required and/or Deleting the column but SharePoint Online doesn't seem to allow this option.
So in SharePoint online you can remove the Required option and rename the field but you can't remove it and you can't change the Type.
Title is such a generic name that I find clients often asking "What should go into the title field?"
My question is this: What has become common practice with regards to the Title field? Rename it, hide it or delete it (the first 2 for SO)
I understand that simply renaming the column in the Edit Column view doesn't change the underlying name as can be seen in the URL in the Edit Column view, and this has implications when developing add-ins.
