Advanced Settings For List And Library


These settings allow configuring some extra items within a SharePoint library. Default values of these settings allow the list/library to simply work without requiring any additional customization.


Following are the advanced settings explained –

Content Types :

Here, you can configure the specific content types that will be related with your SharePoint list or library.


Document Template :

On creating a document library, you need to select the specific document template that would be related with the library.


Opening Documents in the Browser :

With this setting, you can configure the way browser-enabled documents will get opened by default. If client application is not available, the documents will open in browser.


Custom Send to Destination :

It helps you create a location available on item menu drop-down. This location can be deployed for sending copy of an already existing document to some new location


Folders :

This setting can be used to disable ability to create various folders within list or library.


Search :

If you do not want the contents of your list or library to be included in the search results, you can restrict them from being added to the index.


Re-index the Document Library :

It allows re-indexing of the entire contents of your SharePoint library during the next pre-scheduled crawl.


Offline Client Availability :

It allows you to prevent users from effectively syncing content with offline clients.


Datasheet :

Set this to “No” in case you do not want users to edit list in Datasheet view.


Dialogs :

It helps you to configure all pages open in full page mode rather than the module dialog.

We hope this tutorial explains the List and Library advanced settings completely.
