Is there a way to create a new custom list with SPServices? There are ways to create new list items, but I couldn't find a way to create a list.
Yes, SPServices wraps the
Lists web service:
Once the list is created, you would use
UpdateList to add fields or modify other properties:
In my opinion (if you are using at least SP2010), list creation via JSOM is simpler than SPServices: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff410509%28v=office.14%29.aspx
