SharePoint 2010 : Create a Site Column

12/30/2010 9:50:30 AM
To create a site column, open the Site Settings page, as explained at the beginning of this chapter, and then click Site Columns in the Galleries section of the page. This selection opens the Site Columns gallery page, where you can create new site columns or edit or remove existing ones (see Figure 1).
Figure 1. The Site Columns gallery page.


To create a new column, click the Create button on the toolbar. This selection opens a page where you can define the column’s name and type (see Figure 2), as well as additional settings—just like creating a list column . The one difference from creating a list or library column in this page is that site columns can be added to a group to make finding the columns from the list of site columns easier.

The Group option enables you to either add the column to an existing group or create a new group by typing that group’s name. By default, the columns you create are added to the Custom Columns group.
