Learn about site columns.
- [Instructor] Previously, we've talked…a little bit about columns.…When you start creating your own columns,…can you imagine the possibility that you might create…the exact same column in multiple lists or libraries?…How about event type, status,…document type, publisher review dates?…This can become a repetitive and tedious task,…especially if they're updated.…For this reason, SharePoint gives us the ability…to create reusable columns that we call site columns.…Think of these as column templates.…A site column can store the exact same types…of information that a column can store.…
