I am very new to SharePoint..... In my team site, I created a folder and then added Links inside the folder. The Links work fine, but I need to figure out how to put a name next to the list so that when people come to it they will know exactly which link they need. See the document area in the figure below. I can't put the screen shot in here but his is on our team site page:

  • I want to display the Title next to the link. I added a title when I updated the properties for the link, but it does not display next to the link in the list of documents. I wish I could add a screen shot. – mewesterman May 19 '17 at 15:46
  • Do you want to see both URL and title side by side? – Alexey Krasheninnikov May 19 '17 at 15:47
  • Yes, exactly. I can't figure out how to add the title. Tried adding a column, but Title wasn't an option – mewesterman May 19 '17 at 15:48

If you want to see the title next to the name you have to update the list view. Follow below steps

  • Go to library settings
  • Go to Views Section and select "All Documents" view.
  • Choose "Title" column from the list of columns.
  • Save the changes

You should see the title next to the name (Same as in the order of columns in list view settings).


I'd suggest creating the title as a link. You can do this by adding a content type that's a link.

In your library settings, under 'Content Types', select 'Add from existing site content types'. From here you should be able to select 'Link to a Document'.

Once that's done, when you click on the 'New Document' dropdown you'll see the option for 'Link to a Document'. This just calls up a box for you to enter the name and URL.
