I've created a custom list in SharePoint 2010, but I believe I've missed a step somewhere.

I tested out the "add a new item" button. The item still shows as new after having been viewed.

Is there another step I need to do to ensure it doesn't continue to show new even though it's been viewed?


Items will still be tagged as "New" even after they have been viewed.

By default in SharePoint 2010, the "New" icon will continue to be displayed for 2 days.

You can check the setting via Powershell:

$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication "http://YourWebApp/"

You can change the "New" tag duration to 1 day as follows (or zero days by swapping "1" for "0" in the 2nd line below):

$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication "http://YourWebApp/"
$webApp.DaysToShowNewIndicator = 1

Code borrowed from this post.
