Using a Lists tool

Note: This article has done its job, and will be retiring soon. To prevent "Page not found" woes, we're removing links we know about. If you've created links to this page, please remove them, and together we'll keep the web connected.

You may work with any of the following types of Lists tools:

  • Lists tools downloaded from a SharePoint site to a SharePoint workspace.

    Some Lists tools in a SharePoint workspace may be external lists, which leverage the Business Connectivity Services features of SharePoint. This type of list shares most but not all features with lists that synchronize directly with a SharePoint site.

  • Custom Lists tools that do not interact with a SharePoint site, added to a Groove workspace.

This help article provides links to topics that describes features in all types of Lists tools. With a few minor differences, the features offered in each type of Lists tool are the same.
