  • Hi TampaGC,

    This is Bob with Microsoft Office 365 SharePoint Support.  Thank you for coming to the communities with your question on how to configure the “What’s New” web part.

    I have been working on this and found that you have to have Indexing enabled on the List/Library before it will show up in the drop down menu in the web part. 

    To enable this you need to go to the List/Library and then to the settings page (i.e. Library settings) and under the Columns section there should be 3 options “Create column, Add from existing site columns and Indexed columns select the Indexed columns and then create new index, in the Primary column select [Modified] from the drop down selection then click create. 

    Now the List/Library should be available in the web part.

    Please let me know if there is anything else that I can assist you with as I will be monitoring this thread over the next few days. 

    Thank you,

    I have created the Index, but no lists shows up yet in the Whats new web part.

    Thanks.

  • Hi Tampa,

    When you created the Index did you use the [Modified] option?  I noticed that this didn’t work unless that option was used.  It may also take a bit before it may show up. 

     

    Please let me know if there is anything else that I can assist you with as I will be monitoring this thread over the next few days and will reply accordingly.

  • Hi Tampa,

    Thank you for your reply.  since this is not working for you I would suggest that you create a service request using the link that I sent you via private message, as this may need to be escalated to our operations department for further investigation. 

    Thank you,
