Use List Columns with Meetings 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 earlier demos Peter has created content types in the Content Type Hub for meeting notes and action points and then used them in lists. The same content types are used for lists in mulitple site collections, but you can still add list columns to the lists. In the demo below Peter shows how it is done.

Add a list column to a list that uses a content type

  1. Open the List settings and then the content type the list is using.
  2. Click on the Advanced settings link.
  3. At 'Should this content type be read only?' select No. (For content types created in the Content Type Hub the default setting is Yes.)
  4. Now you can create a new list column. The column will be added to that list, but otherwise the list columns will be like in the content type design.
