  • Hello,

    No, its not possible to change the column type.

    But you can change this column properties to make it hidden and create another column etc.

    Go to list Settings-->Advanced settings-->Set " Allow management of content types? " = YES.
    Click on your content type -> Click Title Column

    From here, you can make this as optional or hidden.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Jacob,

    No, it's not possible to change a text column to "People and Groups." A single line of text can only be changes to these types:

    I had it hidden in the past. The problem then was that when I refer to it in annother list's Lookup type column I don't have the option to use the column I created; it wants to use only the Title or ID.
