Make Changes in Meeting Notes Content Type

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconIn 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 the previous 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

  1. Open The Content Type Hub site collection.
  2. Open the Site Settings and click on the link ‘Site content types’ link in the Web Designer Galleries group.
  3. Show the group your content type belongs to.
  4. Click on the link to the content type you want to change.
  5. 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.
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.
