How to Create a Site Content Type based on ObjectOfItem in SharePoint Designer 2013

In order to create site Content Types based on the list parent Content Types Group ObjectOfItem, select Content Types in SharePoint Designer 2013 and then click Content Type in the ribbon.

For instructor-led SharePoint training, see our class schedule.

We’ll call this “Marketing‑Slogans”. It’s going to be from the parent content type “List Content Types”.

002-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

The parent content type of item.

003-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

I will keep it in the AAA-Marketing Content Types group, because this is a Marketing content type.

004-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Now that I’ve got the Marketing‑Slogans content type created, I can go ahead and click on it.

005-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

It takes me to the Settings page, and then click “Edit content type columns”.

006-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Now I can Add Existing Site Columns.

007-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

I’m looking for my new site columns.

Now interestingly enough, it did not in this UI pick up my new site columns, even though I just created them.

008-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Because I’ve run into this type of thing before, I don’t panic. I just close SharePoint Designer, click Yes if I need to save anything.

009-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Close the browser window, and re‑open them again. Generally this seems to fix this problem, but it’s some kind of caching deal going on.

I’ll go back to my Content Types link in the navigation and then click Marketing‑Slogans

012-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Click Edit content site columns,

013-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Now I’ll click Add Existing Site Column.

014-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Now you see it does include my site columns.

015-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

If I try and hold one down and hit Shift, that doesn’t work. I actually have to add them one at a time. So, I’m going to first add Slogan

016-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Then I’m going to click Save. I’m going to then Marketing‑Slogan > Edit Site Columns > Add Existing Site Column, and I’ll add “SC‑Opinion”.

017-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Probably even a little faster to do this in the browser, but I want to show you how to do it in SharePoint Designer 2013, and this particular part of getting this all together.

018-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

So, that hooks up the site columns to the content type. The Content Types should be ready to go. I’ll validate that by going back to the browser, going to the Site Actions, Site Settings menu

019-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Click on the Site Content Types link.

020-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Click on Marketing‑Slogans.

021-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Then scroll down and you can see yes, I’ve got SC‑Slogan and SC‑Opinion.

022-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Now, the Title Column they actually want on this content type not to be a piece of the puzzle. To do that from this page, I’ll click the Title column.

023-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

Then I have an option to say, “Hidden, will not appear in forms.”

024-spd-116-create-a-site-content-type-ObjectOfItem

When I do that, it doesn’t give me an option to put a title in the forms, which is fine. But sometimes things like Quick Edit View don’t work as well, depending on what you’re doing.

But in this case, it’ll be fine, I’ll just use the default editing tools anyways. When I’m done I’ll click OK, so I’ve got everything configured and ready to go for this content type. I need to create a container and attach this to it.
