Customising a SharePoint list content type form - "Manage multiple list items with this form"

I have designed a form for a content type on an existing SharePoint list.  When I ran the initial wizard, I selected
Manage multiple list items with this form which is great, exactly what I want.
But, there are some columns in this content type that I do not want repeating and have them moved them outside of the Repeating Section but I am getting the below error.  I can't seem to find a way to create a new non-repeating group though.  Any
advice on how to do this?

  • Search for documents using External Data on list content type

    hi,
    say we have clients in an external database, we create the external content type for use in sharepoint 2013
    we create two content types, Quote and Order for use in a library
    we create a document library that uses the above content types
    we then add a column for the external data ( in this case Client Name- but also include ID) , we have the option to copy to content type selected. so now library shows 'Client' and 'Client:ID'
    I believe that column gets added to  list content types based on the 2 document content types.
    so we have list items , which have a document , a content type and a piece of data from the external LOB system.
    now that is fine, works great, however, how do you configure the content search web part to return documents based on the piece of external data - ie client:ID ? or Client Name ?
    I can map the client:ID to one of the Int00 managed properties and crawl etc - but do not see a way to use that to return documents
    any help would be appreciated :)
    thanks
    MrP

    Create a scopr with that in managed properies and then u can get results from  external sources

  • Missing Columns from List Content Type

    Hi,
    I'm having some strange problems with one of my site collections, I have site content types with a few columns in it and I'm using them in 3 different libraries.
    However recently something happened and it seems the list content types in one of the libraries have stopped using some of the columns set out in the site content type (according to library settings). The columns still show as part of the list (and the metadata
    is still in there), when I've tried adding them back to the list content types, I do not see them in the list columns group, only in their original column group. If I try to add them to the list from their original group I get the errors similar to the following:

    I've tried to make changes to the parent site content type, however those changes to not push down to the library in question. The missing columns have varied types (single line of text, lookup, managed metadata and so forth). All of these content types &
    site columns were created through the user interface of SharePoint.
    Can anyone help me with any ideas what has happened and/or how to fix this problem?

    Hi Hans,
    As I understand, you have custom content type in 3 libraries, while the issue occurs to the columns in this content type.
    I wonder if the issue occurs to other two libraries as well?
    From your description, "I've tried to make changes to the parent site content type, however those changes to not push down to the library in question", do you mean that changes in content type are not reflected to the list which is added to this
    content type. If that is the case, I'd suggest you recreate content type.
    If the site content type works well in other two libraries, please create a new library and add this content type. If it works well, then move the list content to this new list.
    Regards,

  • List content type columns don't show new names after resource files were changed

    Hello,
    we ran into a problem, that we're not able to figure out at the moment.
    We have a site collection with site columns and site content types defined and created with
    features ant their XML files. All display names are retrieved from resource files. We do have
    several subsites, that have predefined lists also created from features and their corresponding
    XML files. They use inherited versions of these site content types as list content types with
    their columns inherited from the site columns.
    We had some changes within the resource files and never ran into a problem up to now.
    We changed the display names of some of these columns within the resource files. After
    these changes the site columns, site content types and list columns show the changes
    as planned. Unfortunately the columns of the list content types do not display the changes.
    They still show the old name. If you try to alter the old names manually the new name is
    shown within the form, but you're not able to save it and the list content type columns
    still have their old name afterwards.
    We checked our definition files and they seemed to be well.
    Any ideas?
    Regards,
    Markus
    List columns as defined within new the resource file:
    List content type columns, that do not show the changes from the new resource file:

    Hi,
    According to your post, my understanding is that you want to modify the site column name in the list.
    I try to reproduce the issue, however, everything works well.
    You can modify the DisplayName in the Element.xml file.
    Then after you redeploy the project, the site column name will be changed in the list setting page.
    In addition, please check whether you create the list correctly.
    For more information, you can refer to

  • Deploying a Reusable Workflow to a List Content Type using PowerShell

    We have a situation where deployment of a reusable workflow for a site content type cannot be completed through the web interface due to the number of libraries where the content type is in use (time-out on deploy and update).
    It was hoped that this could be accomplished with PowerShell but the method of deploying to a list content type appears to be different than it is to a list (all content types).
    The below snippet works fine for a list / all content types:
    function AddWorkflowToLibraries ($SiteCollection, $ctName, $WfName, $WfAssociationName)
    $site = Get-SPSite $SiteCollection
    [Guid]$wfTemplateId = New-Object Guid
    #Step through each web in site collection
    $site | Get-SPWeb -limit all | ForEach-Object {
    $web = $_
    $_.Lists | ForEach-Object{
    if($_.AllowContentTypes -eq $true)
    if($_.ContentTypes.Item("$ctName") -ne $null)
    write-host "Enabling workflow on" $_.Title "in" $_.ParentWebUrl
    $ct = $_.ContentTypes[$ctName]
    $culture = New-Object System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US")
    $template = $site.RootWeb.WorkflowTemplates.GetTemplateByName($WfName, $culture)
    if($template -ne $null)
    $tasklist = "Tasks"
    $historylist = "Workflow History"
    if(!$web.Lists[$historylist])
    $web.Lists.Add($historylist, "A system library used to store workflow history information that is created in this site. It is created by the Publishing feature.",
    "WorkflowHistory", "00BFEA71-4EA5-48D4-A4AD-305CF7030140", 140, "100")
    if (!$web.Features["00BFEA71-4EA5-48D4-A4AD-305CF7030140"]) {
    Enable-SPFeature -Identity WorkflowHistoryList -Url $web.Url
    $wfHistory = $web.Lists[$historylist]
    $wfHistory.Hidden = $true
    $wfHistory.Update()
    if(!$web.Lists[$tasklist])
    $web.Lists.Add($tasklist, "This system library was created by the Publishing feature to store workflow tasks that are created in this site.", "WorkflowTasks", "00BFEA71-A83E-497E-9BA0-7A5C597D0107", 107, "100")
    $association = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAssociation]::CreateListAssociation($template, $wfName, $web.Lists[$tasklist], $web.Lists[$historylist])
    $association.AllowManual = $true
    $_.AddWorkflowAssociation($association)
    $_.Update()
    else
    Write-Error "Workflow Template not found"
    AddWorkflowToLibraries <Site Name> <Content Type Name> <Workflow Template Name> <Association Name>
    However changing the association as follows causes the script to still execute without a problem but the workflow doesn't appear for the content and the associations collection is empty:
    function AddWorkflowToLibraries ($SiteCollection, $ctName, $WfName, $WfAssociationName)
    $site = Get-SPSite $SiteCollection
    [Guid]$wfTemplateId = New-Object Guid
    #Step through each web in site collection
    $site | Get-SPWeb -limit all | ForEach-Object {
    $web = $_
    $_.Lists | ForEach-Object{
    if($_.AllowContentTypes -eq $true)
    if($_.ContentTypes.Item("$ctName") -ne $null)
    write-host "Enabling workflow on" $_.Title "in" $_.ParentWebUrl
    $ct = $_.ContentTypes[$ctName]
    $culture = New-Object System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US")
    $template = $site.RootWeb.WorkflowTemplates.GetTemplateByName($WfName, $culture)
    if($template -ne $null)
    $tasklist = "Tasks"
    $historylist = "Workflow History"
    if(!$web.Lists[$historylist])
    $web.Lists.Add($historylist, "A system library used to store workflow history information that is created in this site. It is created by the Publishing feature.",
    "WorkflowHistory", "00BFEA71-4EA5-48D4-A4AD-305CF7030140", 140, "100")
    if (!$web.Features["00BFEA71-4EA5-48D4-A4AD-305CF7030140"]) {
    Enable-SPFeature -Identity WorkflowHistoryList -Url $web.Url
    $wfHistory = $web.Lists[$historylist]
    $wfHistory.Hidden = $true
    $wfHistory.Update()
    if(!$web.Lists[$tasklist])
    $web.Lists.Add($tasklist, "This system library was created by the Publishing feature to store workflow tasks that are created in this site.", "WorkflowTasks", "00BFEA71-A83E-497E-9BA0-7A5C597D0107", 107, "100")
    $association = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAssociation]::CreateListContentTypeAssociation($template, $wfName, $web.Lists[$tasklist], $web.Lists[$historylist])
    $association.AllowManual = $true
    $_.ContentTypes[$ctname].AddWorkflowAssociation($association)
    $_.ContentTypes[$ctname].Update()
    else
    Write-Error "Workflow Template not found"
    AddWorkflowToLibraries <Site Name> <Content Type Name> <Workflow Template Name> <Association Name>
    The only change is:
    $association = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAssociation]::CreateListContentTypeAssociation($template, $wfName, $web.Lists[$tasklist], $web.Lists[$historylist])
    $association.AllowManual = $true
    $_.ContentTypes[$ctname].AddWorkflowAssociation($association)
    $_.ContentTypes[$ctname].Update()
    But unlike the list version, the association doesn't appear to be saved and no error is generated.
    Is anyone aware of what may cause this or have an example in C# that may explain something my script is missing?

    Hi Garry,
    After you associate the workflow to the content type, you should update the update the content type using
    $ct.UpdateWorkflowAssociationsOnChildren($true,$true,$true,$false)
     method.
    Here is the completed script:
    [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint")
    $site=Get-SPSite "http://serverName"
    $web=$site.OpenWeb()
    $list=$web.Lists["ListC"]
    $taskList=$web.Lists["Tasks"]
    $historyList=$web.Lists["Workflow History"]
    $ct=$list.ContentTypes["Link"]
    $culture=New-Object System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US")
    $wfTemplate=$web.WorkflowTemplates.GetTemplateByName("Three-State",$culture)
    $associationWF=[Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAssociation]::CreateListContentTypeAssociation($wfTemplate, "myThreeStateWF",$taskList,$historyList)
    $ct.WorkflowAssociations.Add($associationWF)
    $ct.UpdateWorkflowAssociationsOnChildren($true,$true,$true,$false)
    Here is a demo about how to update it using C#

  • Multiple "Workflow Task (SharePoint 2013)" content type found

    Users on one specific sub-site reported that they are unable to add site columns to content type. When user clicks "add existing site column" user get error message - upon looking up on ULS, it indicate there were duplicate column "System.ArgumentException:
    No two choices should have the same ID". I came across similar issue on different site before and resolved it by deleting duplicate column, plus that site column was not used on any list or associated with any content type but this time duplicate
    column is "Task outcome" column which is associated with "Workflow Task(SharePoint2013)" content type. So looking up these two specific site column and content type I noticed there are 8 occurrence of each at affected site
    level (see below on image).
    Similarly there are 8 "Task Outcome" columns under Site Columns. So I refreshed staging env with prod copy and tried to delete "Workflow Task(SharePoint 2013" content type and got error message as shown below. Under Site features, I noticed
    "SharePoint 2013 Task List" feature was enabled, hoping this will do the trick I disabled it as we still use SharePoint 2010 workflows, but to no avail.
    Sorry, something went wrong
    The content type "Workflow Task (SharePoint 2013)" is part of an application feature.
    Not sure how it got started and something will try to find out but any advise on how to fix this issue?
    Thanks,
    MK Sin

    Hi Sin,
    According to your description, my understanding is that the users got an error when clicking “add existing site column”.
    For deleting the duplicate “Task outcome”column, you need to go to the “Workflow Task(SharePoint 2013)” content type, click the “Task outcome” column, and remove it from the content type.
    Then go to site columns, find the duplicate columns, and delete them and make sure only one “Task outcome” column exists.
    After the above, re-add the “Task outcome” into the “Workflow Task(SharePoint 2013)” content type.

  • How to change content type from Document set to Item

    While creating content type I've selected Item as a parent but after created I can see its showing Document Set as a parent content type. Now can anyone please suggest if possible I can change the parent content type from Document Set to Item.

    Hi,
    From your description, I know you want to change content type’s parent after creating it.
    There is no OOB method to change content type’s parent after you create it. If current content type has not been used, you could delete it and recreate it with your desired base type. Here are similar cases:

  • SharePoint 2007 - Content Type Usage

    My question relates to Content Type Usage.  I am helping to develop a customer facing SharePoint site template for my company.  The main purpose of the site is to track the ERP Software Implementation process from start to finish.
    I created a new task list which includes all the stages and activities within the project schedule of the implementation.  I then created a calendar View of this task list so that customers can view it in calendar form. 
    The issue that I am running into is that the Task List Item Content Type doesn't include the All Day Event column and so the items on the calendar view of the task list are not displaying properly (they end the day before vs the day of).  I found that
    I need to add the Event Content Type in order to utilize the All Day Event column.  I added the Event Content Type and now have found that's it's an either/or situation.  I can either create a New Event or a New Task.
    Long question short, is there a way that I can "merge" content types so that the Task content type includes the All Day Event column?

    Columns form part of content types, which you know.  What isn't clear is that there is a _hidden group of columns that don't appear in the SharePoint GUI.  The All Day Event is one of them.  If you were to download
    SharePoint Manager 2007 you could find the property and change it's group.  Here's a screenshot of what you'd need to change
    You'd navigate something like Farm --> Services --> Web Applications --> <Your Web App> --> <Site Collection> --> Fields.
    I normally move items from the _Hidden group to the Custom Columns grouping. This will then make it available for addition within the Content Type that you've made.
    Hope that helps.

  • External Content Typ: "Connection manager did not return valid connection."

    Hi,
    I created an external content typ in the sharepoint designer which takes my custom WCF Service as a data source. I sucessfully added all my required operations and created a new list based on the new content typ. At first I had a security issue which I got
    resolved by editing my BDC configuration in the Central Administration. Now I face a new issue. When I open my external list the BDC Service gives me the following error message:
    "Connection manager did not return valid connection."
    Has someone a solution for this kind of message?
    Thanks,
    Eric

  • Scrip to update Sharepoint Online content type

    I have a content type "TestContentType" with three columns:
    Document Type
    Category
    Sub-category
    This content type is used on 18 document libraries, in 3 site collections.
    The Category column needs to have a "description" added which currently has no description. Is there a way to achieve this via a script so I don't have to make change manually via the UI.
    So far I have come up with the following script, but this so far only lists all list and document libraries. What I actually need is to be able to get the content type in this case "TestContentType" and then update the "Category" column
    to include a description:
    $loadInfo1 = [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Client")
    $loadInfo2 = [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime")
    $webUrl = Read-Host -Prompt "HTTPS URL for the SP Online 2013 site"
    $username = Read-Host -Prompt "Email address login"
    $password = Read-Host -Prompt "Password for $username" -AsSecureString
    $ctx = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($webUrl)
    $ctx.Credentials = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($username, $password)
    $web = $ctx.Web
    $lists = $web.Lists
    $ctx.Load($lists)
    $ctx.ExecuteQuery()
    $lists| select -Property Title
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    This isn't the best way to do it, which would be manipulating SharePoint through the CSOM, however you can automate IE so that it runs through a series of actions.
    The nice way would be to use something like the client-side code here:
    https://sharepointpowershell.codeplex.com/
     I don't have the time to dig into it at the moment but i'd try to merge that CSOM approach with something like this script:
    http://get-spscripts.com/2010/11/add-and-remove-site-content-types-from.html which uses the on-prem version.

  • SharePoint 2010 Content Type Hub

    Hi,
    I have a Content Type Hub in the SharePoint Server and it is being subscribed to one of the Web application and it’s site collections.
    If I make any changes in existing column of the Content Type in Content Type Hub and subscribe to the required site collection, the changes are not being propagated to libraries columns which are part the attached Content Type from the Conte Type Hub.
    But the Content Types are being subscribed and changes are available at Site column of the Subscribed Sites but not in the existing Library level.
    If I add the New column in CT hub and the new column appears in the existing Library of the subscribed sites.
    Please assist me how can I propagate the Content Type changes from CT Hub to the existing Library of the subscribed site?
    Regards,
    Vidya Lokesh

    It's a known issue.
    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sharepoint/en-US/b865e6a0-39d8-4aae-9df6-f07ff9d1d96c/content-type-changes-are-not-reflected-in-subscribing-document-libraries?forum=sharepointgeneralprevious
    MS chose to avoid pushing down to lists and libraries, presumably to avoid people trashing their systems by making silly changes and pushing them down to thousands of lists and libraries.
    The only surefire way is to delete the CT from the list/library and re-add it. You could script something up to do that I guess but I don't know of any examples of it floating about.
    PS. You're in the wrong forum, this relates to 2010 not 2013, although in this case that's not a major issue.
