Working in an online teamsite and trying to get a handle on the new modern pages in the site pages library.
I noticed that New > Page, News Post, and News Link all end up as pages in the site pages library. I was trying to figure out how to tell them apart and found this thread talking about the Promoted State modern column -- you can find it from the view Add Column > Show/Hide menu, but not from the classic Library Properties. It says that regular Site Pages have a value of 0 and that News pages have a value of 2.
I've googled quite a bit, but have not found much else about the column or how it works.
First question: Does anybody know of MS documentation for this column and what values can be used? For example what is a 1 or an 8?
I also tried to change the value by first adding it to a view and then using Quick Edit to change it. However the cell remains greyed out and does not allow for changes. I'm site collection admin and have full control on this team site, so shouldn't be the issue. My guess is that when the above thread was created several months ago that it was an editable column and in an update since they locked it down, but that is just a guess?
Second question: Has anybody else tried (recently) to change the value of a Promoted State successfully? Or is there some other way you know to change it?
