SharePoint Mobile View Issue

Happy Autumn!

With Halloween just around the corner I wanted to offer a treat for those of you who use Microsoft SharePoint (SP).

One great feature of SP is the ability to provide mobile access to list data, simply by selecting “mobile” as an option.

However a recent change by Microsoft has cause a perplexing problem where the “save” link after editing an item hides itself beneath the bottom banner! And believe me it took a while to figure out where it was hiding.


So I wanted to share two ways around this issue that have worked for me.

Solution #1 (easiest)

Solutions #2

Happy Trick or Treating!
