  • 3. What is a Content Type?
  • 4. That’s a content type
    Every time you click ‘New’ in a list or library, you use a Content Type to create a new item.
  • 5. The default content types don’t do much.In a document library, they provide you with a blank Word template and basic metadata – the document Title.
  • 6. Create your own Content Types
    Apply a template
    Define metadata (columns)
    Configure retention and auditing
    Set-up a workflow
  • 7. Configure your document library to use content types
    • Go to Library Settings and select Advanced Settings
    • 8. Switch ‘Allow management of content types?’ to ‘Yes’
  • Now you can add your own content types to the library

    Assign one (and only one) site collection as the hub
    All content types created in the hub are available for re-use across all other site collections
    …new to SharePoint 2010

    Configured under Central Admin in the Managed Metadata Service (MMS) properties
