How do I configure the New button?

In this article, you will learn how to configure the new item settings available in the General Settings section of each List App.

Note: The instructions in this article are applicable to Administrators in the Top Level Site as well as to Power Users who have Owner permissions on a workspace.

1. Navigate to the List Settings

Navigate to the List App.  

  1. On the View Toolbar, select the Settings Gear.

2. Open General Settings (EPM Live)

Under the General Settings heading, select General Settings (EPM Live).

3. Name for New Item

Enter the name that will show on the Create New menu.  For example, for the Project Center List App, the new item name is "project."

4. Hide New Button

Hide New Button: When checked, users will not be able to create a new item in this List App.  This setting is often set in the Task Center List App, since new tasks are to be created using one of the Planners, rather than one at a time directly into the List App.  When the New Button is hidden, it will no longer show on the Create New menu.  Also, the New Button will be grayed out in the Items ribbon.  If the View Toolbar is enabled, the New Button will also be hidden from the View Toolbar.

5. Save and Close General Settings

When finished, click Save.
