    Hi Emma, Welcome to SharePoint StackExchange, I would like to start off by recommending you read the FAQ[1] for posting as while your question is clear it opens up multiple answers depending on why and how you want it to act. Therefore we recommend that you always provide the scenario as well as the question and if possible an example.
