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 Hub.
- Open any root site and go into the Site Settings.
- Click on the Content Type Publishing link in the Site Collection Administration
- 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.
