I have added a new Issue tracking list , which is based on the build-in “Issue” content type. Then I need 5 extra columns to be used , so I did the following:-
- I went to "Site setting">>"site columns", and I added 5 new site columns.
- Then I went to my newly added list>>list setting>> Click on Issue content type, as follow:-
- Then from their I chose to add from existing site columns, and I added the 5 new site columns, as follow:-
And everything worked well. But I have the following 2 questions:-
Is adding site columns directly inside the default content type considered a good approach or it is considered a bad approach ? and I should create new content type, instead of extending the defualt content type at the list level?
Second question , why the site columns which I added inside the Issue list content type will have their source as blank, as follow? although they are site columns :-
Can anyone advice on this please? Thanks
