Respected Contributor

I created a new Site Collection in SPO using the Team site template. It includes a Site Collection Feature called "Review", the description is "Enable the definition and declaration of review."

It is not included in the "official" list of features at https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Enable-or-disable-site-collection-features-617CAC22-455A-47....

 

Are other people seeing this?

Does anyone know what it is for?

Hi @Dean Gross,

 

I've had a look into this.

 

The review feature  creates a Review Items list. It also sets the list as the welcome page (which is a bit annoying)

 

For the rest there isn't anything that is added by this feature.

 

I then had a look through the other site collection templates and there is a new template Review Center. I wonder if the Review featuree should have been kept hidden as it should only be used by the Review  Center.

 

Hi Pieter,

 

a customer of my switch this feature on..... do you know how I can safely remove the list?

Or is the only way hard delete bij SPD or sitemanager.aspx?

 

With kind regeards,

 

Rob

@Rob Rijlaarsdam Did any of you figure out how to delete this Review Items list? List settings does not have the "Delete this list" option. Thanks

@Rajiv Chokshi PnP is failing to delete as well. :(
