Meetings, Content Type Hub
A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström
a series of articles Peter Kalmstrom, CEO and Systems Designer
of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, will show a way to
use SharePoint to automate taking meeting notes and handling
meetings and meeting decisions in general.
In the demo below Peter describes how to reach and use the
SharePoint Content Type Hub. When you create and publish
content types in the Hub, they become available for the
whole tenant, and you don't have to create content types
for each site collection. Therefore it is worth the extra
trouble of creating content types in the Hub.
Reach the Content Type Hub
The Content Type Hub site collection is not visible in the
SharePoint admin center. Instead you can reach it from a
site. Peter gives the Content Type Hub site collection a
specific name and follows it, so that he can find it more
easily next time.
The Content Type Hub site collection root site builds on
the team site template, but it has one extra unique feature,
which is activated by default: the Content Type Syndication
- Open any root site and go into the Site Settings.
- Click on the Content Type Publishing link in the
Site Collection Administration group.
- Click on the Hub link.
When you have created your first content Type in the Hub,
the settings page for that content type will have a 'Manage
publishing for this hub' link. Click on it to publish the
content type, and after a certain delay while it is being
published, the new content type will be avaliable to the
whole tenancy for search and new lists.
