On a recent large scale SharePoint workflow deployment, a colleague and I discussed how many minor details go into building SharePoint composite solutions. We were continually amazed at the time spent on minor items; field choices, views, forms, etc. I need hours to consolidate the things we learned – but here’s a little pearl – when creating SharePoint list fields, do this every time:
This may seem like a no brainer – but trust me – when you amass hundreds and thousands of list column fields – you will thank me you did it early on in your project. When it comes to code view, logs, trouble shooting, avoiding problems, forms, views, etc. this is a mark of quality and thoughtfullness in design.
