We like to remove the fields/attributes displayed in the available column list in the Project/Program/Idea search and other custom portlet search pages. We like to remove IT Project Manager and IT PMO lead fields from the Available column list so that users should not choose them going forward I removed these fields from the Portlet Layout and Objects Layout and published the views too. But still they are appearing in the available columns. Please find attached the document that explains step by step to replicate this scenario and what we are trying to remove from user selection
It is actually a different attribute that someone updated label to IT PMO Lead, but actual attribute is "Project Management Office", Attribute ID = obj_stakeholder2. But the once we deactivated this morning are no longer showing in the list. You can see the label by going to List Column Section->Fields.
