In this walk-through, you will learn to create a new list using the Custom List template and add various list columns to it. Although any SharePoint list can have custom columns added to it, the Custom List template creates a nice clean list to work with.
The Create Column button might not display the text next to the icon if your browser window is not wide enough.
Note the Display choices using options that include Radio Buttons and Check Boxes. The check boxes allows for multiple choices and the radio buttons provides an alternative display for single selections. The default Drop-Down Menu takes up the least amount of room if the column is included in a view. Views will be covered in a later part of this course.
For the Who field, you can optionally click a name from the drop-down list that SharePoint provides.
