How to add Web Parts to the list item forms September 13, 2009

Filed under: SharePoint — fmuntean @ 6:28 pm

As many of you know that list item forms as new, view or edit does not allow for editing the page to add web parts.

One way to overcome this issue is the use of SharePoint Designer.

However during my searches over the internet for something totally unrelated found a post talking about a hidden query string that will enable the web part management for those pages.

So here I am passing along the findings:

  1. Access the custom list and click New.
  2. Append the following to the URL: &PageView=Shared&ToolPaneView=2

That will transform your boring vanilla data entry form from something like this:

To this:

Now I wonder how many other Easter eggs are hidden inside SharePoint ?
