Updating content types
Creating a content type for commonly used documents is one of the most powerful features of Share Point 2013.Content types allow your documents to be organized and uniform across your Share Point site, ensuring that all site users know what information a document contains along with keeping all documents consistent for easy site management.One of the management overheads is when a document template needs to be updated.
Once the template is in place, all the sale executive will need to do is click “New Document” on the Share Point site and the ‘Sales Contract” will automatically be available for easy access.Content types have a collection of field references (or links) to the list columns which get updated, but the links themselves have their own set of properties which override those set for the list field.This means that if you run the Power Shell snippet above, any existing content types which reference that field will continue to show the field on edit forms.Content Types are the building blocks for structured authoring in Drupal.
Content types often work in conjunction with Views, which is one way you can serve up content to your end users; you can control the content types that appear and the order in which they appear.
