All Content Types in a list not visible in the new form RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 content types: Item and TestContentType

    Item contains 2 columns: Title and FormTest

    TestContentType contains 2 columns: TestDirectTitle and TestContentTypeColumn

    I created a list and added the above 2 content types. Now I can do a new Item and select either Item or TestContentType.

    I want a have a list where I can add all the 4 columns(2 from items and 2 from TestContentType) at the same time when I click new item button.

  • Hi,

    With the current setup what you want is not possible. Please do the following & see if it serves your purpose:

    1. Create the Item content type with the two columns.

    2. Create the TestContentType based on Item content type & add the additional columns.

    3. In the list settings allow multiple content types.

    4. Add the TestContentType to the list.

    5. Then remove the default content type & keep only TestContentType.

    6. Now when you click on New Item, you get the four columns.

    You can only open one content in one new item click.

    Please let me know if it helps.
