I have created a new List Form which is working fine but I need to hide the bottom part of the form as it will be edited by a different team.

When I go into SharePoint Editor I can see the part for new form and edit form but this looks nothing like what I have published.

My Request form I want to use is like the below:

enter image description here

Edit Form is exactly the same as above but has this extra fields for additional information when edited after submit by the user.

How do I go about linking these forms to the relevant Edit / Add item forms? Can I edit the HTML to hide that particular area?

If your lab staff belongs to a SharePoint Group(or you can create a group with these users), you could use JSOM to check whether current user belongs to this group, if user doesn't belongs to the group, disable the section(controls) by jQuery.


  1. Check if current user belongs to SharePoint group via CSOM (JavaScript).

  2. Disable a form element using the .prop() method.

  • I just want to hide the bottom part of the form - I create the form in Info Path and then publish. From SharePoint Designer I just get the generic layout form and it's HTML. When I click preview it shows my correct form but I have no idea how to get this to show so I can edit the HTML. Thanks
