Manage Rental Agreements – Add Content Type to List
A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström
In the previous article we explained how to create a content type for rental agreements. Now we will add this content type to a list.
In the demo below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, creates a new custom list, makes some changes to the list and view settings and then adds the rental agreements content type as the only content type for that list. Then, when he creates a new item, he will have a form with the columns he added to the content type.
Add a rental agreements content type to a list
Open the list and click on the List settings button under the LIST tab.
Under Advanced settings, Allow management of content types.
Click on the link 'Add from existing content types'.
Select the content type group and add the content type you wish to use. Click OK.
Click on the default content type and delete it from the list.
Modify the view so that the site columns are visible.
In the next article we will create a template from the list, so that we don't have to do all the work over again for new lists that should use the same content type.
