how to show SharePoint custom column in Win Explore RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a network drive mapped to a SharePoint library which has a custom column.  But the win explorer does not show custom columns. Is there a way to get the column and its value to appear in Win Explorer?

    Thanks for any tip!

  • Windows Explorer is only showing as files like any other applications. You need to open it or redirect users to open it with specific application or through webpage.

  • Hi QuickLaunch,

    All the possible columns are listed here.

    If that option is not listed here, I am afraid we have to use the specific application or through webpage as Cyber_Defend_Team pointed out.
