I am building a prototype of a Sharepoint app and I am new to this technology. We have a need for a piece with News items. Someone comes to a sharepoint site and adds a news piece there. This news content piece needs to be approved and to do that approver
goes to a staging environment where they can see this news post in proper context (of how it would look in production) and can approve it. If they reject it, news piece never gets propagated to pro environment which also subscribes to this content type.
What I did was I created content type hub with a "News" content type in a Content Type hub and subscribed other sites to this hub. I can see this content type in subscribing sites.
I have following questions regarding this problem:
- Is it the right architecture for such a task?
- I am trying to create a list which would manage adding and editing of news items but I can't find any option to bind a custom list with content type, I can add site columns to a list but I am not able to base a list on a content type.
Thanks for your input.
