Maintenance and creation of lists and libraries are one of the site owner’s primary responsibilities. Well constructed lists and libraries save users time and frustration, which translates to an effective gain for organisations.

Versioning and other library settings which can serve to enhance a list or library are also taught in this module. The following lessons are covered:

Creating & Managing Content Types

Configuration of Content Types allows Site Collection Administrators and Site Owners to group attributes such as metadata, workflows and document templates into functional components. These Content Types can be managed in a dedicated site collection so that they can be shared across the entire SharePoint farm.
