The Column Type Checklist for Microsoft Lists Forms

Microsoft Lists has introduced a new feature that streamlines the process of creating and managing lists: Microsoft Lists Forms. This addition is a significant step forward, enhancing the functionality of Microsoft Lists by providing a more intuitive and user-friendly interface to add data to the lists.

However, it’s important to note that not all column types available in Microsoft Lists are currently supported in Microsoft Lists Forms. This limitation is something to keep in mind when designing your forms.

If you’re uncertain about the supported column types for your form, here’s what you can do:

  1. Create a form for your empty list. If you’re not familiar with this process, you can find guidance here

    Hi João,
    Thanks for a very useful post. This is all very fresh and – unfortunately – not yet available everywhere. Do you know if ‘Multiple line of text’ is available in MS List Forms if the ‘Rich Text’ option is on?

      Hi Matt,

      Yes, it is supported. When in the form the user has the opportunity to format the text.

      Have a nice day 🙂
