I notice in several libraries in the company a form is presented when uploading documents, yet for the libraries I've created, I only have the quick edit option. I would like the form so that I can provide Help tips next to each required field.

Where is this setting managed?


  • What do you mean you only have the quick edit option? don't you have Upload Document option under FILES option in top ribbon? Commented Nov 15, 2018 at 13:52
  • Maybe you are using datasheet view in your library. is that so? Commented Nov 15, 2018 at 13:55
  • Yes. I'm looking at the documents in the document library. It's presented as a list.. each doc on a row with column name across the top. I upload and the document appears at the top of the list. Commented Nov 15, 2018 at 13:55
  • can you please attach the screenshot if possible? Commented Nov 15, 2018 at 13:58

    in Modern experience, you will not get the form while uploading document. however you can exit the modern experience and use in classic experience. Commented Nov 15, 2018 at 14:41

under the list tab ribbon of the page, you should have a few different options available, including Quick edit (View Format section), create view (Manage Views), and a customized list section that has multiple edit options from customize form to New quick step. you should also have a List Settings option under the settings section. Are these not available to you?
