Can't see all documents in Document Library RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to view all documents in my Document Library, many of the documents I expect to see aren't there. When I sort alphabetically, the list shows 30 documents and stops with items starting with 'G'. If I sort by date modified, once again I can see 30 documents, but there's no button to see additional documents.

    Why is it cutting off the list after 30 documents? Why can't I see all documents at once?

  • Check the Item Limit settings in your view.  By default the AllItems view is set ot show documents in batches of 30.  But there is also a radio button there that will limit the total items returned to the number specified, with 30 being the default.  Someone may have accidentally switched that radio button on.
