Creating a list using a built-in list template

In Chapter 2, Introduction to SharePoint Online, we saw how to create a custom list from scratch. In this chapter, we'll see how to create lists using predefined list templates. For our recipe, we will use theAnnouncements list template. You can use the Announcements list to easily share news, updates, and announcements about your department or organization. You can use the inbuilt rich text editor to add images, links, and rich formatting to these announcements. You can then add this list as a web part on the home page of your site so that the announcements are prominently visible to your site visitors. You can additionally set an expiration date for each announcement so that it drops off the list after that date.

We will now see how to use this list template to create a Marketing Announcementslist on our site.
