I have a SharePoint list with Items. for example I know the start date of the item using "Created" field similarly I want to know the end date of the item. So do we have any field in SharePoint List which tells us end date of that item ?

  • What defines end? As with created, and end date would simply be a piece of metadata (column, field, etc). The difference being that created is by default on all sharepoint content types and created has a static definition, while no item has an end, unless deleted, but then the item is done and deleted must be logged elsewhere.

If by the End Date you are looking for - the Timespan between Now and when the item has been Created - create a Calculated column using Today token and Created - Timespan between moment of creation (Created field) and time when last changed, use again a calculated column using the Modified field.

See here for calculated columns - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb862071(v=office.14).aspx

Anything else it will be related to what exactly "end date" would actually mean to you (e.g Task content types have Start Date and Due Date, etc.)

  • yes that's what I need. "Created" implies Start Time and "Modified" implies End time of an item in a list.Thank You Marius.
