Reusing Folder Content Types and views in multiple document libraries RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    In Sharepoint 2007 I have a folder content type and an associated view only available to that folder content type. Now, I create a folder within a document library using the content type and the view is the way I want it. The order in which I create things is:

    Document Library -> Folder Content Type -> Folder -> View -> Change permissions for view

    Now, I create another document library, include the folder content type from above and create a folder within the new document library using the above folder content type. But the view is the default view (All documents") and not the view I created above.

    Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks :)

  • The view is attached to the library, not to the content type.  You can go to the first document library > settings > document library settings > save document library as template.

    Then create the new document library from that template.
