Page properties Web Part in SharePoint Online
- SharePoint Online Page properties web part helps you to provide the information of a specific Site page like Title, Department, etc.
- In a Page properties web part, we can display only custom properties and a Title column but we can’t display the other default columns like Modified by, Created, etc.
- Only some of the SharePoint columns are supported to display in SharePoint Online, they are:
- Single line of text
- Date and Time
- Person or group
- Managed metadata
- Let’s take a scenario. Suppose, I have a SharePoint Site Page Library and that is by default (Site Pages) in SharePoint.
- In that Site page library, I have some site pages that I have created for different customers like HR Related Page, Press Related Page, etc.
- In the above screenshot, you can see there are various columns like Name, Created, Modified by, etc. Now I will create two more columns on this Site page library i.e.
- Department = Choice Data type
- Handled by = Person Data type
- Now by using a SharePoint Page properties web part, I would like to display all the information about a particular Site page (Semiconductor-Products). Here, all the Site page information means Department, Handled by, etc.
