SharePoint Default Enterprise Content Types

All the Enterprise Content Types delivered in a new SharePoint tenant

This table works in companion with the SharePoint Default Site Column table, together they form a 360° map of existing Site Columns and Content Types.

Sites come pre-populated with a number of Content Types.  This map shows these “default” content types, and their relationships to site columns that are also pre-populated.  Use this Map to plan your content types.
