I have a NewForm to add an new item to a list. I like to have a meaningfull tooltip for eacht of the fields on that form. I know it can only be done by changing the title of the fields.

How do I address this?


or maybe what I found in another question,

"ToolTip goes here");

Is there a way to do this?

  • In a normal html form it's easy: <input id="firstname" name="firstname" title="Please provide your firstname."> – Marco Nov 14 '17 at 18:33

I solved it. In SharePoint it's not possible to change the tool tip because it's linked to the title of a field. There are workarounds but they are complex. I solved it by putting a small icon in front of each field and have a title in there that displays some help text.

  • could you please tell me as to how did you achieve this? @Marco – jayant khushalani May 14 '18 at 4:38
