Site columns across multiple site collections

  Asked By: Heriberto    Date: Oct 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2198

I have a new portal instance I am standing up that has multiple site
collections. As part of that I will be creating a set of custom site columns and
content types some of which will be duplicated across some, or all, site
collections.

Is there any way to use a single site column or content type across multiple
site collections?

If you develop them as Features they can be activated in multiple  site
collections. Then you will have the same definition across the site  collections.
If you develop them in the UI they will have different GUIDs and won't be actual
duplicates.
