How can I know the "Created" and "CreatedBy" fields of a SharePoint library? I am using SharePoint 2010 Enterprise
- Open the library in browser
- Activate the ribbon and choose "Open in Explorer"
- Go one level up
- Right Click the Library and Select Properties
- Created Date will be displayed in the property window
the below script will give you the Created date of List/library.
$web = Get-SPWeb “http://yourweburl” $list = $web.lists[“Your List Name”] $listCreatedDateTime = $list.Created $web.Dispose() $web = $null Write-Host $listCreatedDateTime
Also check this MSDN for more properties n Method.
The Created date and Created By (Internal name
Author) can be checked one of the tools like SPManager. However, if a code solution like PS is needed then the script by @Waqas can be used with one addition
$list.Author to get created by information.
