In this video you will learn about what are SharePoint classic Lists.
Or listen what are SharePoint Classic Lists on Soundcloud.
We will talk about lists, because the site is just a box and we discussed about its set of lists and libraries so if you have ever worked with Excel, so it's going to be similar to that. So if you see here, I have an Excel sheet where I have a question and answer, comments and date. These are the headings and I have a different information like questions and I can add the details in answer, comments and the date. So in the same way, so you can have the same kind of information in SharePoint also so I have a column called question, answer. I can add comments. I can have a date also but if you've ever worked with SQL table, so it's going to be similar to that as well. It's basically to store the content within your site, so this can be questions or this can be any information about tasks or any other thing, which you could store, whatever you could store in Excel or SQL table. All that information can be stored in a list. If I go back to the main training site, this is the one I was talking about, the questions list, so I have this question column. I have an answer so what we could do is you can go ahead and add a question or the answer, the comments with respect to that question but if I see in Excel, it's going to be similar to in general how we are going to add the entries in Excel. So in the same way, you could add those details in the list as well, so you can add items to the list.
