Ted Amado starts to create a list in a library for a Course catalog. The intent is for members of Ted's Education and Training division to collect and post proposed courses for inclusion in the 2012 course catalog.

1. In place library click Place Actions > New > List

Table 2. Importing and exporting a list
After starting the course catalog list in the place library, Ted learns that his colleague Samantha Daryn has already started a spreadsheet of course catalog items, so he simply imports her spreadsheet into the list.
The import process recognizes where there might be issues with the imported content and prompts for approval before completing the import.
After the import completes, the list is populated from the spreadsheet.
With a seeded list, team members can add new items to the list when desired. This is what Ted directs place members to do.
