Hidden Metadata Fields

When configuring your document libraries in SharePoint, you can choose to hide certain columns so data can be extracted into them but not be seen by the user.

This setting can be used to hide metadata fields in the Edit Properties dialog in Email Manager for Outlook. They will still be visible in SharePoint.
