Adjusting the display of the !New icon

Posted by sharepoinTony on December 31, 2009

You upload a document in SharePoint 2007 and the nifty little !NEW icon appears, but for how long?  I couldn’t find a difinitive answer, some places said the default is 1 day, others listed 2 days.  Well, it doesn’t matter now because I just set it to the number of days I wanted it to display.  Here is how:

stsadm -o setproperty -pn days-to-show-new-icon -pv X

-pn = Property Name, In this case it is “days-to-show-new-icon”

-pv = Property Value

X = Number of Days

For example, If you would like “New Item” icon to be displayed for 2 days then you want to execute following command:

stsadm -o setproperty -pn days-to-show-new-icon -pv 2

Nothing shattering here, just a handy reference.

    Hi Tony: thanks for this post. Is there a way to hide the !New ico for a specific document library?

    • There isn’t a way that I am aware of using out-of-the-box tools or settings. Someone out there may have come up with a clever way to do this, but I haven’t discovered it. If you find a way please post back to let us know.
