  • So after I add a few items into a list that I have created. In standard view I cannot click on anything to Delete or Edit....

    I can only edit or delete in Datasheet view which I dislike. Any suggestions.

    PS: Also I have hidden the title column because I do not use it. Not sure if this matters but just fyi...

  • You can rename the Title column to Project Name. Go into the list settings and under columns you will see Title. Click it and the change column page will open. You can rename it here. Click OK.

  • The Title (linked to item with edit menu) column provides the dropdown menu that allows you to edit and delete an item. If you've removed this as you state, then this explains your issue. Add the title column back.

    Alternatively, the Edit (link to edit item) column displays the edit icon (paper and pencil) which allows you to edit the item and from there delete it.

  • Well I dont need a column that is named Title, Is there anyway to make my column "Project name" the new title with its properties?
