Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting options for default forms, part of SharePoint 2013: Customizing List Forms.
- We can do some things to modify this form.…And the way we'll do that is,…we'll actually be changing the list settings…underneath this form.…For example, we can change…the order of the fields in our form.…When our form was created,…SharePoint put First Name,…then EmployeeID, the Last Name.…We actually want the EmployeeID to be first.…We'd like it to be the indexed field, as well.…We can do that by changing the list settings.…
By setting criteria for the types of values…that can be entered in a particular column,…we can do some basic formatting.…For example, we can take a number…and indicate that it needs to have…two digits after the decimal point,…or that a date will be presented…using a short date format.…We can also calculate values.…If we wanna add a calculated column, we can do so.…And that works.…We can also do something…that's really hard to do in a lot of forms,…which is, we automatically have the ability…to add attachments.…
We can turn that off…if we don't want to be able to add attachments.…But it's really cool to be able to add documents,…
