Automatically assign view title to column when new Sharepoint List item added

David Carroll 21 Reputation points

I've created a master list of items in a Sharepoint List. I have established multiple views of this list (filtered on Customer) and pinned them into Teams according to Customer. I would like to hide the Customer Column in each view, and default Customer for new items created in those views to the name of the current view (Views are named according to customer). Is there a way to do this inside the column's calculation, or is there any other way to do this?

    Hi @David Carroll ,

    Do you want to get current view title and add it into new column when create new item?

    Per my test, there is no available way to achieve this. I tried to use calculated columns but the calculation only depend on other column values. So we are not able to get view name and add it to SharePoint list columns.
