How to ensure new sites are automatically added to a site category. RRS feed

  • Question

  • You create a site collection based on teamsite template. You need to ensure that when you next create any sites/sub-sites under that, they all should be automatically added to a site category. what should you do to achieve this?

    Moderator Note:

    You have posted a mass of posts at roughly the same time. ALL of these posts have extremely poor titles that say nothing about the problem itself (here the title was "site categories"). Do not make such mass postings. Look at one problem and investigate it by searching the forums etc. THEN post that question. Next look at the next question and investiage that (which will take time) THEN post that question. Make sure that you have the correct forum (many of this lot were posted to the wrong forum) and make sure your Titles are meaningful (none of these - ten? - Titles were). Using the above method will mean that your posts arrive at intervals and not all at the same time - by having sensible titles and by being posted to the correct forum, you will be more likely to get good answers to them.

  • Hi,

    This is the default behavior of SharePoint that when you create any sites it automatically goes under Sites category, if you create any List it goes under List category and same for the Doc Lib.

    Please let us know if this will answer your question.
