Continuing my beginner series on SharePoint, in this article, I will explain how to add any list as a Webpart, wherever required.
This article consists of 5 steps, that are easy-to-follow. If you are not aware of how to create lists in SharePoint, please follow this article SharePoint - Creating a Lookup column in a Custom List.
Step 1: Create a new custom list called ‘Projects’
Step 2: Go to ‘Site Actions’ and click on ‘Edit Page’ Link as shown below
Clicking on Edit Page will bring up the following screen.
Step 3: Clicking on ‘Add a Web Part’ button will display all the available web parts of the site, in a popup window. Go to ‘List and Libraries’ section in this window and select the ‘Teams’ list (if you already have created one) or you can select any list you want.
Step 4: This will add the ‘Teams’ list as a Web part. Clicking on Edit link > Modify shared web part item in the header of the web part title, will display the properties edit window where you can set the properties of the web part.
Step 5: Click on Exit Edit Mode link displayed under Site Settings and see the teams list displayed in the page, as shown below.
That’s it! This way you can edit any page and add web parts to it. I hope you are finding my SharePoint beginner series useful. You can use the comments section to leave feedback.
