Currently my Title column has a link in it, but I need to make it bigger and change the font while keeping the href function (after clicking on the title it opens editing).

When I use "elmType": "a", the text disappears.

I found following script, but it does not work:

"$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column- 
"elmType": "a",
"txtContent": "@currentField.desc",
"style": {
  "font-size": "13pt"
"attributes": {
  "href": "@currentField"

Anyone got a hint? Thank you.

You can use the below JSON to update the Title field.

Updated the JSON to open Edit Form on Title column value click.

  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column-formatting.schema.json",
  "elmType": "button",
  "customRowAction": {
    "action": "editProps"
  "style": {
    "border": "none",
    "background-color": "transparent",
    "font-size": "13pt",
  "txtContent": "@currentField"

  • After I use this JSON, the text disappears. There is not exactly https link, but after clicking the title, there is a dialogue window with editing the item.

    So, on the click on Title column value you want to open Edit Form? Jul 7, 2021 at 11:56
  • Yes. When I click on Title, I should be able to edit all values in an item.
