Rules for groupable Fields in SharePoint Lists

Every field cannot be grouped, there are some rules which need to be fulfilled for a field to be grouped.

Here are the rules:

  1. If the field is not "sortable", then it is not groupable
  2. If the field is hidden, then it is not groupable
  3. If the field is set not to display in viewforms, then it is not groupable
  4. If the field is a lookup field and is set to display related items, then it is not groupable
  5. If the field is the built-in file name field, then it is not groupable.
