Column Permissions App (Office 365)
Dynamically show/hide/deactivate fields to create smart SharePoint forms!
Control the visibility of specific list form fields in the New, Edit and View item forms. This app also allows you to hide views from the list views & to hide or disable columns in the Quick Edit view. Dynamically hiding/disabling fields is done by setting up logic rules. This way you can turn your SharePoint list forms into dynamic, smart forms that display only the relevant fields according to the current user and context.
This is probably the biggest gap with SharePoint forms: they are generic and have no context. In real life, a form used by different users, or when used at different points in time, should display different fields.
- Help-Desk form submissions – the customer and the help-desk engineer utilize different fields; each sees what’s relevant to their task
- Task management – although, a user has permissions to edit tasks in a list, once a task is marked “completed”, we might want to lock the task from any additional editing
We all got used to working with SharePoint lists and document libraries. It is only natural to expect these list forms (New, Edit, View) to include all required web form features, instead of making us buy and learn a separate Forms technology such as InfoPath or any other external Forms services.
The Column Permissions App is part of KWizCom Forms App, which allows SharePoint/O365 customers to keep using the well-known list forms by turning them into powerful & dynamic web forms. This way there’s no new technology to learn and deploy, simply keep using the same SharePoint list forms that now can include all the missing web form features.

KWizCom Column Permissions app includes 2 packages that you need to install:
- KWizCom Column Permissions SharePoint-hosted app package
this package includes the app’s functional modules.
- KWizCom apps modern list upgrade package
with this new SPFx package KWizCom Column permissions rules will work also in the modern list views.
The following section describes the exact installation steps:
Installing KWizCom Column Permissions app
There are 2 ways to install the app:
- Install from the Microsoft App Store
- Manually add the app to your internal App Catalog
Installing the App from the Microsoft App Store
- Click “Add an app” while browsing the site to which you want to add the app:
- Click the “SharePoint Store” link on the left:
You will be redirected to the Microsoft Apps Store.
- Find your requested KWizCom app by typing its name in the Search box (or just type “KWizCom” to find all our apps on the store)
- Install the free version. This version includes a message that indicates that this is a free trial version.
- Install the KWizCom Apps Foundation.
Manually adding the app to your internal App Catalog
This option is relevant to customers who do not want to install apps from the Microsoft apps store and prefer to manually add the .app files to their internal catalog, so users will then install apps on their sites only from the company’s internal catalog.
- Click Here to download the ZIP file
- Add the product app file and the KWizCom Apps Foundation file to your Apps Catalog site, according to the instructions in the README file (included in the ZIP file)
Installing KWizCom apps modern list upgrade package
- Click Here to download this package’s ZIP file.
- Login as tenant admin to your SharePoint Online environment.
- Upload this SPFx package to your apps catalog, and deploy it tenant-wide.
- To learn more about how to manage your company’s internal App Catalog, please refer to the relevant Microsoft documentation for SharePoint On-Premises and for SharePoint Online.
- In case you manually add an app to your internal catalog in on-premises SharePoint 2013-2019, you still need an active connection to KWizCom’s CDN (apps.kwizcom.com), so you cannot have this in a completely closed environment.
- You cannot have the same app installed both from the Microsoft App store and from the company catalog at the same time within the same site collection. That would give an error during adding the app.
