Hello,

I inserted an Announcement web part on my SP 2010 publishing site but there is not expiry column.  How do I add it?

Office 365 shouldn't be a problem for Announcements list.

I have the  "Team Collaboration Lists" feature enabled in an Office 365 Team Site and see Expires column.

Maybe see if the column exists in your content types..

Go to

YourURL/_layouts/mngctype.aspx

Click on the Announcements content type under "List Content Types" and see if expires is in there. It should be.

Also confirm that the "Team Collaboration Lists" feature is enabled.

What Office 365 package are you subscribed to?

Does it not work in publishing sites?
That wouldn't make sense.

It does work in Publishing sites. Can you double check that you have an actual Announcements list, because I'm not seeing the columns I'd expect for an out of the box Announcements List.

To add a column that is missing;

Go to the Announcement list. On the ribbon click List-> List Settings

Click Add from existing site columns and choose Expires.
Add Column
You should now have Expires on your announcements list.

This is really weird.

I created another Announcement list and went to list settings but do not see Expires.

Is there a feature that needs to be on?

Jamie McAllister MVPSharePoint ConsultantCommented:
The "SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure" feature includes Scheduling, and it'd make sense Expires would be a scheduling column.

Is the publishing infrastructure enabled? I thought this was a publishing site?

Other possibility would be the "Team Collaboration Lists" feature on the site level...

It's enabled.

I am using SharePoint Online(office 365) but I don't see why that would be a problem.

It's the 30 trial version and it's Plan E3.

I activated Team Collaboration lists feature and Expires is still not showing.

I am doing something terribly wrong.

Ok.  getting somewhere now.

I do see Expires in the content type.

Do I just need to add it?

How do I add it just incase?

Jamie McAllister MVPSharePoint ConsultantCommented:
You should be able to add the expires column to the list as detailed above in our thread.

As for why it isn't appearing by default, not sure. I have a P1 install to play with, and it's visible there.

Ok.  I was able to add it but when I create a new item, I only see title.  I don't see the body or Expires.  What am I  doing wrong?

Jamie McAllister MVPSharePoint ConsultantCommented:
Change the view of the webpart (clicking into webpart menu as above) to be the Summary View.

If this doesn't work, edit the view as detailed at the start of our thread and add the columns to the view that you need.

You're not doing anything wrong. This is new technology, and you're getting used to it the way we all have.

Thanks a lot for you help.  That worked!   I will post another question because the 'Expires' does not work.

I added an item and set the Expires to yesterday but, the item still showed up.
