  • SharePoint not provide any OOTB webpart or way to make view of multiple list. You have to create one application page for this,where you will write own business logic to create a view.

    May this helps you

  • Hi Prasanth,

    Alternatively, you can use content query to filter by content type and group by month.

  • Hi,

    I didn't try yet, but I am suggesting to create a custom list template (in this case a document library) with the content type and the defined view. Then you may have to import the list-template on the subsites and you can pick it each time you are creating a library with that content type in it.

    Would be worth a try...
