It can be very important to know the SharePoint list type you are working with. This is especially helpful information when troubleshooting, working with BrightWork support, checking a list created by another user, or dealing with report issues. It very simple to find this out.

 

How to Identify an Existing SharePoint List Type

  1. Open the list in question in any view.
  2. Right-click anywhere in the browser page and select view source.
  3. Open the find box (CTRL + F) and search for ListTemplateID
  4. Record the ID to right of ListTemplateID.
  5. Armed with this ID, you can now find the long name using BrightWork Help.
