I know how to modify the columns displayed for a list, and for creating/editing an item, but how do you modify the columns that are displayed when you go 'into' an item.

I have a Tasks list, and when I click on one of the Task items, I'd like to restrict what's displayed to the columns that I want to display, i.e. I don't want to show background calculated fields, like ContentCalc and Summary in the view below.

The easiest way: create a custom list view with SharePoint Designer 2007.

  • Working with SharePoint Designer 2007 for the first time can be tricky but you are on the right path. If you have some specific questions post a question. Jul 14, 2010 at 7:26

Not sure if this is also part of the requirements but I believe you would still have to apply some security trimming to the columns in that view for the appropriate audience. Check this article out link

  • No, I don't have to worry about any user permission requirements. Jul 14, 2010 at 15:27
