How do I configure whats new webpart?
Under target list I get two options. Select List and site pages.
Neither gives me the oprtunity to select a list or a page.
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.
I have created the Index, but no lists shows up yet in the Whats new web part.
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.
I did use the modifed but no luck.
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.
I’m just checking in to see hoe the Service request is going and to see if there is anything else that I can assist you with.
Please let me know as I will be watching this thread for a few more days.
