How do I create Classified ads for employees

Copper Contributor

We need to create a module of classified ads. Currently we are managing with a simple list, but the problem is the rendering of attached images. 

With attachments, the user needs to click on the image name, it will open in a new tab and so on.

We would like to be able to display the images within the ads, right under the description of the item. 


We tried to use Rich Text fields. But it is more complicated for the user to find how to add the image and if the image file is big, it display in a huge size and the user has to resize all the images. Is there a way to control the size of the image? 


We are on Sharepoint 2019 On prem. We also use Nintex Forms.

Have done this before as far as I remember, In SharePoint 2019, create a custom list with columns for different ad details such as job title, job description, department, location, and contact information. The next step is to add the columns to the form and use Nintex Forms' drag-and-drop interface to add form controls and customize their appearance and behavior. Once the form is ready, you can publish it to make it available to users, and add a link to the form on your intranet home page or create a separate page for the form. To enhance the look and feel of the classified ads list, you can use SharePoint's list view formatting feature to apply custom styles and formatting to the list. This solution provides an easy and organized way for employees to search for job opportunities within the organization while providing a centralized location for HR and recruiters to post job openings and manage the application process. Hope this helps
