In classic mode a List Filter Web Part is available but what to do in a modern site. Is it still possible to use a classic page in a modern site with the List Filter Web Part? If yes how if no, is there an other way?

To use a classic page in a Modern site I found How to bypass the new Modern Team Site Page experience.

To use a List Filter Web Part I read at Connect a Filter Web Part to a List View Web Part on a classic page.

But the Filter Web Part is not available in the categories on the classic page. Who can help me?

In order to access the Filters section in web part you need to activate the SharePoint Server Enterprise Site collection features at site collection level.

Follow below steps:

  1. Go to your Site collection.
  2. Go to Site collection settings. its URL will be like siteUrl/_layouts/15/settings.aspx.
  3. Select Site collection features under Site Collection Administration section. its URL will be like siteUrl/_layouts/15/ManageFeatures.aspx?Scope=Site.
  4. Search for SharePoint Server Enterprise Site collection features and then click Activate.
  • Have you activated it at site collection level? Can you please refresh page (if you have not) and then try adding web part on classic page. Sep 17, 2019 at 13:51
  • I have made a new page and now I can configure it. Thank you very much.
