Make Changes in Meeting Notes Content Type
A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström
a series of articles Peter Kalmstrom, CEO and Systems Designer
of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, is showing a way to
use SharePoint to automate taking meeting notes and handling
meetings and meeting decisions in general.
demo Peter created a list for meeting notes and added a
new content type to it.
When you try a content type in a list you often discover
things that could be better, so in the demo below Peter
describes how to make changes to a content type .
Peter has created his content type in the
Content Type Hub,
so that he does not have to create new content types for
each site collection. When making changes, he must of course
also do them in the Content Type Hub. Then the content type
can be automatically updated everywhere it is used. This
is the default setting, and it is shown when you have opened
a site column in edit mode.
Open a content type site column in edit mode
When a change has been made in the Content Type Hub, the
content type must be republished. However, within the Content
Type Hub site collection no publishing is necessary, so
this site collection is good for testing changes before
propagating them to the rest of the tenancy.
- Open The Content Type Hub site collection.
- Open the Site Settings and click on the link,Site
content types? link in the Web Designer Galleries group.
- Show the group your content type belongs to.
- Click on the link to the content type you want to
- Click on the column you want to change and then
on the Edit site column? link. Now the column opens
in edit mode, and you can do the necessary changes.
