I have a Sharepoint List with columns "name", "date", "stage", "information".

"stage" is a checkbox column and "information" is a multi-line text box.

Is it possible when a "stage" checkbox is selected while creating new item, form will populate the "information" text box with some default information for the user to see?

If so, how would I implement this functionality?


  • Which SharePoint version?

  • Using OOTB functionality it is not possible. To achieve this you need to write custom code and add it in script editor or content editor on new form. Oct 26, 2018 at 3:37
  • @Gary Where the information will be stored/ from where you need to get the information? Oct 26, 2018 at 4:53

Yes it is possible. You can attach JSLink to the list-view wepbart with custom code which will handle this functionality. You can see some other examples here: https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/office/Client-side-rendering-JS-2ed3538a
