Change SharePoint “Save” button to “Submit” in new item forms

“Save” isn’t as familiar/intuitive to non-SharePoint users as language such as “Submit” can be. Change “Save” to “Submit” by adding a script editor or content editor web part (CEWP) to the newform.aspx page for your list.

Keep custom headers, footers, CSS, etc. from loading in SharePoint modal dialogs

modalfooter

When writing your own custom headers and footers, you probably don’t want/need that script showing in modal dialog windows too. It can look sloppy or accidental and may wrap oddly, as seen in my example above.

Luckily, it’s an easy fix.

Adjust SharePoint list column widths in classic view using jQuery

columnexpand

This is a popular request that I’ve recently modified, thanks to the recommendation of a colleague, to be responsive to different device or browser sizes. By default, SharePoint lists respond to their viewer’s size but once customized with a fixed pixel width will lose that feature. This solution utilizes percentages so you can create column widths ideal for any screen.

Update 6/18/19: I’ve recently shared how to adjust widths using CSS and it covers standard AND datasheet views, while the method below is written only for standard views (but could certainly be adapted for datasheet, I imagine).

Remove select/de-select checkmark column, column headers, edit/new options, and border in SharePoint list view web parts

tooltiplinkedtitlesIn a recent post, I discussed hyperlinking URL title text and adding tooltips. I used the above screenshot which also illustrates what we’ll accomplish in this post which is to remove the select/deselect checkmark column, column headers, toolbar edit/new options and chrome border. This leaves us with a simple title and list. Pick and choose what you’d like to remove for your specific needs, and let me know if you run into any issues.

Highlight specific column headers in a SharePoint list

Highlighting specific column headers can be useful in drawing attention to specific information areas to make sure they’re complete or just to aid users in seeing the most important info quickly.

You can insert this script in a Script Editor webpart or save it in a css file in your Site Assets and reference the link in a content editor web part on the list page (much more accessible and easy to edit later).

Simply replace “Column1” with the exact name of your column header. Repeat the script as many times as you wish for each column header you want to highlight. Remember to change the script if you change a column name. And if this yellow isn’t your thing, check out this color wheel to help pick a new color code to use in your script.

[code]

<style>

.ms-vh-div[DisplayName="Column1"]

{

background-color:#FFFF66;

}

.ms-vh-div[DisplayName="Column2"]

{

background-color:#FFFF66;

}

</style>
