In this post we will discuss how to create a custom list using SharePoint 2016 using SharePoint designer 2013. We can create various list using browser, sharepoint designer or visual studio 2015 etc.
Also you can read:
In SharePoint 2016 there is no newer version of SharePoint designer, so we can use SharePoint designer 2013 to connect to SharePoint 2016. Open your SharePoint 2016 site using SharePoint designer 2013 and then from Ribbon click on the SharePoint List button and then choose a Custom List template. Because we are going to create a list using custom list template. It should look like below:
Then in the Create list or document library to your site page, give a name and description like below:
Once the list created successfully it will open the List page where you can manage few things like:
List Information: In this section you will be able to see the name, description, address, List GUID, items count etc.
Customization: In this section, you can edit the list columns and permissions for this also.
Settings: Few settings will appear like: hide from browser, display this list in quick launch etc.
Views: You can see the views presented in the list, by default only All Items views will be shown and also you can create views from there.
Forms: You can see the forms used in this list like display form, new form and edit form.
Workflows: You can see the workflows associated with this list. Also you can create new workflows.
Now we will try to add columns to the list, From the Customization section click on Edit list colums link as shown in the fig below:
By default one column appears for the list which appears are "Title" column and You can rename it by right click on the column name.
Then from the ribbon, click on Add New Column and then select the data type. Here we select Single Line of Text like below:
Similarly we can add one more column as choice type. And to add choice option you can put like below, one option in one line.
Similarly create another filed which will of Multi Lines of Text. Then if you want to enable Rich text then from the Column Editor windows select checkbox "Enhanced Rich Text (Rich text with pictures, tables, and hyperlinks)".
After this save the list and you can see the list got created and all the columns also has been added. You can see the changes by visiting the list in the browser.
