    Page Size

    Defines how many child content nodes you want to see per page. This will limit how many content items you will see in your list. If you set it to 5, then only 5 content items will be shown in the list.

    Order By

    Will sort your list by the selection you choose in the dropdown. By default it selects "Last edited" and you get the following three columns:

    • Last edited - When the content node was last edited and saved.
    • Name - Name of the content node(s).
    • Created by - This is the user who the content node was created by.

    You can add more sorting to this list by adding more datatypes to the columns in the "Columns Displayed" section.

    Order Direction

    You can select order of the content nodes displayed, "Acsending" or "Descending". The order is affected by the "Order By" selection.

    Columns Displayed

    It is possible to add more columns to the list, via adding the properties through the dropdown. These properties are based on the Data Types which are used by the Document Type. It will show up in the dropdown by its alias and not the name on the property.

    Once you have selected a column that you want to display, the next thing you want to do is define what its name should be and what kind of value it should display. You can also move the headers around, re-ordering how the headers should look. This is done by the move icon on the left side of the alias.

    The template section is where you define what kind of value you want to display. The value of the column is in the value variable.


    The list view comes with two layouts by default. A list and a grid view. These views can be disabled if you are not interested in any of them.

    A minimum of one layout needs to be enabled for the list view to work.

    You can also make your own layout and add it to the settings. For example, if you wanted to change the width or length of the grid, you will be able to do so.
