I have a SharePoint Online list, I want to be able to go to create a new item and hide certain fields from users. How do I hide the GeoLocationField in the form only?

I was able to hide other fields using content editor using the input below, but unable to do so with this section. I'm guessing it has to do with GeoLocationField being a different type.

  • Do you want to hide this field from all forms(new/display/edit)? Assuming you are using classic experience, right? Mar 18, 2021 at 4:53
  • Yup, classic experience. That is fine, hiding it in all the forms. I didn’t see the option to hide columns after changing the management setting.

    Are you not able to see the fields under content type columns or not able to see "Hidden" option for this particular field? Mar 18, 2021 at 5:11
  • I see it now, thank you!
