Useful URL Shortcuts For SharePoint Online - Part One

Overview

In this article, I am going to write some useful URLs which will help developers or administrators perform their daily tasks in a very easy manner.

These shortcuts are very useful to developers and make our work faster.

This article covers eight shortcut URLs which we can use in our daily practice.

In my next article, we will cover another eight shortcuts.

Now, let’s get started.

1 Create

Aim - We use this shortcut when we want to create a custom list or library or anything like that.

URL - Yoursite/_layouts/create.aspx

In my case, Yoursite = https -//lt16.sharepoint.com/sites/learn

I should append /_layouts/create.aspx to my site URL.

So, my final URL becomes - https -//lt16.sharepoint.com/sites/learn/_layouts/create.aspx

Please follow the same procedure for all the below examples.

Please refer to the below screenshot when using this shortcut URL.
