Problems with the Title field in Sharepoint Online

    Question

  • Hi there, 

    I have a Sharepoint list which we use for keeping track of our service calls. The system works fine and we are very happy with it. We now need to have the system working on our engineers phones.

    I downloaded a number of Sharepoint Apps on my iPhone to test them out. They all connect to Sharepoint fine, but through trial and error it seems that all of these Sharepoint Apps list the records (in my list) by Title field. The problem is that I deleted the Title field for my service calls list, as it was not needed. However, this means that nearly all of the Sharepoint Apps now list my records with the Title of [No Title]. 

    I have tried re-creating a Title column in the list but this does not work. I found that if I create a NEW list with a Title field, the Apps will list it with the text I populate this field with. And even if I rename this Title field to Name, this works okay as well. So it seems that they are based around the GUID of the Title field. Is there any way that I can create a new field with this same GUID as the original Title field?

    thanks, 

    J
