Use the List 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 web part, which allows you to display a list and customize it with your own title, view, and even size. Users can view, filter, sort, and group the list, or go the full list by clicking See all.
