Document libraries just store documents. But add content types and you can store invoices, quotations, performance reports, or any other type of document you care to define. This recipe shows you how.
This recipe works for:
SharePoint 2010 Foundation
SharePoint 2010 Standard Edition
SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Edition
Office 365 (SharePoint Online)
You will need a SharePoint site with a document library where you want to add content types. You will need to pre-create some document content types as described in the creating a content type recipe in Chapter 1, Getting Started—SharePoint Essentials. This recipe uses a SharePoint 2010 Team Site for illustration with pre-created invoice and quotation content types.
