Use the List properties web part

When you add a modern page to a site, you can add and customize web parts, which are the building blocks of your page.

This article describes the List properties web part, which allows you to connect to a list web part on the same page and display specific properties of the list on your page dynamically. For more information on ways to connect web parts to show dynamic data, see Connect web parts in SharePoint Online.

Notes: 

  • Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

  • The List properties web part is not available in SharePoint Server 2019.

Add the List properties web part

In the following example, a List web part (top) contains a list of Regional offices. When the user selects an item from the list, the List properties web part (bottom) displays only the Office name and Sales data.
