SharePlus: How to Hide Lists

Anand Raja / Monday, April 30, 2012

Please note: This post applies to the Enterprise version of SharePlus.

If a business rule mandates certain SharePoint lists to be excluded from mobile access, you may use the SharePoint MobileNavigation settings to hide them.  The example below illustrates how this is done.


Hiding a List

In this example, we will hide a SharePoint List named “SharePlus Videos” by  adjusting the server-side MobileNavigation settings.

The following is a screen shot of the “SharePlus Videos” list being displayed in SharePlus.  The list name is displayed on the left pane with it’s contents on the right.



Step 1 – Open the MobileNavigation settings page on SharePoint.

Please note that this custom list is created during the initial SharePlus deployment.  Instructions on how to define this list can be found on page 6 of the attached SharePlus implementation guide.

Step 2 – Select the list you wish to hide and click “Edit”.




Step 3 – Select “Hidden,” then click "Save.”




The list will now be hidden in SharePlus.  You’ll need to tap the "refresh” button on the bottom left to see the change.
