Person or Group Column in List

Posted by

I am building a list of committee members on SharePoint and have two person or group columns, one for the main member and one for the alternate. I cannot get the column to display the field that I select in the column settings. I would like to display “Name (with picture and details)” in both columns, but it will only display the name when I select this (the details and picture are only accessible by hovering over the name).The same thing happens if I select “Name with Presence” or any of the Picture only options (i.e. picture and details are accessible by hovering). But, if I select “Work Email”, for example, it will change what is displayed to what is expected (email address in this case).

One of the columns does not allow multiple selections and one does.

Does anyone know if this is a bug or if I am doing something incorrectly?

Ashley,

I predict you’re not going to like this a lot, however, click on return to classic view….��

Ashley –

Can you send a screen shot (or a few)? I’m having a hard time following what you’re trying to say.

Hi Robert,

I did have a hard time trying to explain it. Here is what I am experiencing:

When changing the “Show Field” setting in the List Settings to any of: “Name (with picture and details, “Picture Only,” or “Name (with presence)”, what is actually displayed is only the name.
Settings Tried:


What is displayed on the list:


Exception:

 This setting does result in a different display:


I did try as Lorne suggested and to Classic View, which did display the expected results, but the column widths were not adjustable and, of course, using classic view is not desirable for all sorts of other reasons.

Ashley,

This is a known “issue” that has a User Voice entry to be resolved.  Unfortunately, without doing customization, I’m not aware of any other way around this outside of going back to classic view.
