SharePoint Basics: Create Your Own Glossary – Video 📽️

  • by

In this video, I will guide you through the steps to create a glossary in SharePoint using a list.

SharePoint lists have been around from early versions of SharePoint and it’s often overlooked. Their “mini spreadsheet” functionality makes them super flexible when there will be hundreds of entries, much more than having a long page which is not filterable or sortable.

I will show you how to navigate to the site content, create a new list, and customize the columns.

By the end of this video, you will have a fully functional glossary in SharePoint.
