You can use SPField.Indexable Property to check whether ContentTypeId field can be indexed or not. Per this http://iedaddy.com/2010/11/sharepoint-2010indexing-columns-in-a-sharepoint-list/ Content type ID cannot be indexed. However, one of the comments mentions that Creating an index on “ContentType” really creates an index on “ContentTypeId”, that ...

You cannot change the parent content type of a content type: The Parent property is read-only. The content type ID is prefixed with the parent content type's ID. See explanation here which is for SP2010 but it works the same for SP2013. You have to basically re-create the content types using the correct parent from the start.

Maybe there is even an easy way to do that but here is what I just figured out looking through all the properties of my Content Types. When a Content Type is inherited from a Content Type Hub then the property SchemaXmlWithResourceTokens looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <ContentType ID="...

May be you might have to check this, Go to your subscribed site > site settings > content type publishing Under site collection administration, make sure you have checked "refresh all published content types on next update” This will update all published content types the next time the content type subscriber timer job runs.

No, If a column 'A' associated with a content type 'X' is deleted in the list settings page, the column will be removed only in the list level and will not be removed from the site content type. So if you delete the column 'A' in list settings and go to Site content types, you will be still able to see the column 'A' in content type 'X'.

There is no technical limit but the suggested amount is around 10 - 15 content types per list/library. This is a great article explaining the benefits: http://www.nothingbutsharepoint.com/2011/09/13/how-many-content-types-do-you-need-in-sharepoint-aspx/

There is no hard limit defined. But if you expect users to be able to use the library and content types I would recommend using as few as possible. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262787(v=office.15).aspx#ListLibrary

Finally hunted down the error: I had the column indexed. Once I removed the index, it changed nicely, then I re-added the index.

Yes, they can have the same display name but not the same internal name (obviously). So when creating the column for each content type name it (prodACustomer) and choose the proper data type and save it (this will create an internal name), then you can edit the column and rename it to Customer (the internal name won't change) and you do the same for the ...

The answer is no on SP 2013 and I don't recall this feature existed on SP 2010 or 2007.

This answer is for the regular user. I can't use SharePoint Designer or extensive javascript and I only have typical user permissions to edit my own pages. I needed to open a new User Agreement document in MS Word, have the user fill out the form fields, sign it digitally, and save it with a useful file name. So I needed a single click button on the ...

This solved the issue for me: http://www.sharepointblogs.be/blogs/vandest/archive/2011/10/19/sharepoint-default-library-content-type-is-folder.aspx In my case it was about removing all Content Types from the library first, and then adding my custom ones. It caused SharePoint to set the "Folder" Content Type as default, even though the Content Type list ...

When you create a task in the workflow in SPD, simply change the content type to match the one that you want for that particular task. For instance, in the 'Start a Task Process' dialog, expand the 'Outcome Options' section and change the 'Task content type' as required. In the screenshot below, the highlighted portion is where you can select the ...

Your question is pretty vague, so I can only give some basic instruction. First of all, try and see if the content type you are searching is under another category from the "Select parent content type from" dropdown. I think this is pretty obvious, but it is still worth to check. Second, know that some of the available content type are provisoned by ...
