I have a document library and an announcement list, now for any new item inside these lists a “New” word or symbol will be displayed for couple of days , then it will be cleared out.

So my question is for how long the "New" word will be displayed beside new items, and is this period configured somewhere?

enter image description here Thanks

You can set the value of days-to-show-new-icon/DaysToShowNewIndicator property, refer following:


By default, the "New" status indicator will display for 2 days; however, it can be configured - check out Salaudeen Rajack's SharePoint Diary entry at http://www.sharepointdiary.com/2012/02/new-tag-indicator-in-sharepoint.html.


The following article has some additional info which maybe helpful.
