the previous tutorial
Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com
Business Solutions, showed how to create a Quote content
Now it is time to add that content type to a new document
library and remove the default content type. When that is
done, all new documents in the library will be based on
the content type he added, which means that they will have
fields for certain metadata.
Add a content type to a document library
In the document library, open the Library Settings.
Click on 'Advanced settings' in the General Settings
Select the Yes option under 'Allow management of
content types', and click OK. This gives a new Content
Type group in the settings.
Under the new Content Type group, click on 'Add
from existing content types'.
Select the content type you want to use for this
Click Add and then OK.
Now the content type has been added to the library,
and users can start creating documents of this type. However,
the default Document content type is still there and gives
a possibility to create other kind of documents in the library
too. Peter removes this default content type from the library,
and he also goes into the advanced settings and makes the
New folder command unavailable.
