SharePoint Responsive > Web Parts > Content Lists > Instructions
Note: This section does not go over editing the list columns or settings, just maintaining content in a list. You will only need to edit a list if you are creating a SmartForm. To edit a list you need a special set of permissions that are given after attending SmartForms training. See the
SmartForms section for more info.
List content is maintained through
Site Actions > View All Site Content. If the corresponding list for a piece of functionality (Tab2 Web Part or SmartForm) does not exist within its parent subsite, the list might be located at the root of the site.
You can edit, add or delete content in the list, but be aware that all additions or edits to a list are applied as they are saved -- edits appear in real time. Lists do not use the standard two-step workflow process. Your changes will be live immediately if the page that the web part is on is published.
Below is an example from the College of Communication. Your list might have completely different fields and/or be named differently, but this a good example of a simple content list that powers a Tab2 web part.
Go to the list through
Site Actions >
View All Site Content.
Select the item you want to edit by clicking the checkmark to the left of the item, and in the ribbon, click on
You are now able to edit the item.
Does your list have an Image field that needs to be updated? In a separate window/tab, upload the image you wish to use to the Images folder (make sure it is first sized properly). Once the image is uploaded to the images library, click on the thumbnail, and the image will open in a new window/tab. Copy the relative part of the URL (everything after ".edu") from the browser and paste it into the image field in your list.
At the bottom of the items in the All items view, click
Add New Item.
Enter the corresponding content in each relevant field. (Note: Some fields may be required.)

You may also need to select an "Active" checkmark (that would allow the item to appear on the page vs. hide it), depending on the type of list and type of functionality.
Save when you are finished.
Select the item you want to delete by clicking the checkmark to the left of the item, and in the ribbon, click on
Confirm that you want to delete this item by clicking
OK. (Note: Deleted list items can NOT be recovered.)
