Use List Columns with Meetings 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.
In earlier demos Peter has created content types in the
Content Type Hub for meeting notes and action points and
then used them in lists. The same content types are used
for lists in mulitple site collections, but you can still
add list columns to the lists. In the demo below Peter shows
how it is done.
Add a list column to a list that uses a content type
- Open the List settings and then the content type
the list is using.
- Click on the Advanced settings link.
- At 'Should this content type be read only?' select
No. (For content types created in the Content Type Hub
the default setting is Yes.)
- Now you can create a new list column. The column
will be added to that list, but otherwise the list columns
will be like in the content type design.
