Add, change, or delete a list or library on a page

You can display views of lists and libraries on a page so people can see important information without having to click through to multiple lists or libraries. You might find this helpful if you want to display the documents, calendar, and tasks for a project all on one page on your site. You display a list or library by editing the page and then adding the list or library app part to the page.

Add a list or library to a page
  1. On the page that you want to add the list or library, click Page and then click Edit. If you don't see the Page tab, click settings Office 365 Settings button, and then click Edit Page.

    Edit the Page

    Note:  If the Edit command is disabled or doesn’t appear, you probably don’t have permission to edit the page.

  2. Click the place on the page where you want to display the list or library, and click Insert and then click App Part.

  3. Select the App Part for the list or library and then click Add.

  4. When you’re finished editing the page, click Save. In some cases, you have the option to Save as Draft or Save and Publish.

Important:  To add a list or library to a page, you need to have permissions to edit the page. Usually that means you have to be in the Members group for the site. Some pages cannot be edited--for example, the Site Contents page.

Here’s an example of a list that was added to a page by using the previous steps.
