In simple terms a Content Type is a way to identify the following about the content in your SharePoint Site in a reusable way: The kind of document or content you are identifying.  Some examples could include a Contract, a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) or a Mutual Nondisclosure Agreement (MNDA). The additional information ...

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 ...

Something about making these document library out of templates caused SharePoint to think the Document Sets were folders. My solution was to get an intern to painstakingly recreate all the Doc Sets from scratch. Worked for me.

Expecting that you don't want to have two copies of the same document, I would suggest taking a look at the content query webpart. You can combine information from multiple lists/libraries into one view.

I'm not sure I entirely understand the question, however there are a couple of points (assuming I'm understanding it a little). Firstly, if you are looking to be able to show the OOTB meta that is shown in the excel docs etc.... then just create the meta data columns in the Content Type (you need to make sure it's named exactly the same, and is also the ...

In the edit form you could hide the "Change content type" selector - it would not be completely bullit proof, but from my experience it Works quite well. Each content type has a different url when you create them, so you're pretty covered there.

I think workflow is not a good option. You can do it with code. Without code you can do that: Create three fields instead of one Asign each field to each content type For instance: field 1 to content type 1, field 2 to CT2, field 3 to CT3.

Yes. Either You have to set default content type to shown content type columns while adding new item OR you can select the content type while adding new item from ITEM TAB --> New item --> Select Content Type in Ribbon. Thanks,

The most common way would be to create your own content type, deriving from Document and add the custom column to this new content type. That way you would not run in to this kind of clashes with other OOTB content types that already inherits from Document. This custom content type could be created and published from a Content Type Hub, making it available ...

Since the query is executed against Listobject, the returned ContentTypeId property of ListItem object contains content type id value of associated list. In that case, to determine content type you need to change GetContentType method, for example: public static ContentType GetContentType(List list, ContentTypeId contentTypeId) { var ctx = ...

If you are working with Network or local system path using file attribute than you should put one more slash in it like mentioned below. Please use file:///SHARED/ instead of file://SHARED/. The path with file://SHARED/ will always open blank webpage & file:///SHARED/ will open the explorer with given location.

I cannot reproduce what you are doing. I get this error message: --------------------------- Message from webpage --------------------------- Enter a valid document name and URL. Valid URLs must begin with 'http:' or 'https:' --------------------------- OK --------------------------- (sorry I cannot comment yet...)

You can use Content Search web part and custom display template to display the columns you want. So I would copy one of the item display templates and rename it and change its title. Add the column to the Header section (maybe you will need to map the crawled property to one of the refinablexxx field) Give it a shot!

Every column that gets indexed by the Search Service Application (SSA) has a Crawled Property created for it. When you go into the SSA via Central Administration and look at the Search Schema, you should be able to dig up the Crawled Property (usually prefixed with 'ows_'). You can then create a Managed Property--mapped to the Crawled Property--which will ...
