Make Changes in Meeting Notes 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 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
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

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