I have enabled management of content types on a list.
I click on "item" and then I click on the column name.
The option to select "hidden(will not appear on forms)" is greyed out.
I check other columns on the list and the option is there.
This column is a yes/no checkbox.

Is that why I can't select it or should this be able to be hidden just like any other item content type?

Hello QPR,

I see the same behaviour, but don't have an explanation. When I change the column from a yes/no checkbox to text or choice (with yes/no as options), i can hide it from the form.

Since you want to hide it, and a yes/no checkbox would only hold TRUE/FALSE, you could use a choice field with TRUE/FALSE as options instead?

Clunky, but at least the column could be hidden.

cheers, teylyn

Thanks teylyn.
Yep that works, just changed it and did some testing (column is part of a workflow condition) and all good. Can only assume that checkbox columns can't be hidden or it's a bug.

Thanks.
