Field level security in Lists - SharePoint 2013

Hi Devendra,

Am highly impressed with your work and the efforts you have put in to build this site. Cheers for that.

I have a SharePoint question for you, I am sure this has been asked right from SharePoint 2007 time and still being asked. What are the different options available for implementing Column / field level security on Lists in SharePoint 2013. I am using Office 365 SharePoint online for building a SharePoint solution.

Would highly appreciate if you can send in your thoughts. Thanks in advance.

Hello Karthik,

Thanks for kind words. Unfortunately you can't control the field level permissions in Office 365 SharePoint site, but there is a codeplex solution that can be used to set filed level permissions, you can check that.
The above solution works in SharePoint 2013 on-premises because its a FARM solution not in SharePoint online.

Best Regards,
