ShortPoint Connect allows you to pull list or library contents from within your site.
Follow the below steps on how you can do it.
Step 1: Create or identify List or Library
From your Site Contents page, you can create a new list or library and place content you want to show on your page. You can also build it out from an existing list or library.
Note: Go to this link for more information on creating SharePoint lists and libraries.
Step 2: Insert a ShortPoint Design Element
In Edit mode, go to the web part where you want to set your list or library and insert a design element.
We are using a Simple Lists design element in this example but you may use any option from the ShortPoint Page Builder.
Step 3: Select Current Site option
Go to the Connect tab and select the Current Site option.
Step 4: Complete Connect fields
List / Library
Your site’s lists and libraries will be shown in the drop-down. Select the one you want to use.
You can choose from the default views or create a custom view within your list or library to connect to.
Indicate how many entries from your list or library you want to appear on your page.
Note: the default value is set to 0. It means, that there could be an unlimited number of items displayed in your ShortPoint List.
Once complete, click the Connect button and wait for the connection to load.
Now the SharePoint list/library is connected. To complete the connection, we need to map the fields, as shown above.
Please proceed to the next step to do it.
Step 5: Map Items
Map the corresponding properties of your list or library to display on your page in the Items tab.
Here we are selecting File Name in the drop-down for the Title field, Modified for the Subtitle field, Item URL for the Link field and new-window for the Linking options field.
Step 6: Click Insert and Publish
Preview your work to see how it will be displayed on your page.
Click Insert and Publish once done.
