Set the number of days of the !new tag near a new item.


When you add a new item to lists or libraries on a Microsoft SharePoint Team Services and Windows SharePoint Services Web site, the new item is shown with a !new tag. This tag has a default property that can be changed to set the number of days to be shown or even to stop the !New tag from appearing when you create a new entry.

Windows SharePoint Services Web site
To set the number of days the !New tag appears next to new entries on a Windows SharePoint Services Web site, use the Stsadm.exe tool to change the “Days to Show New Icon” property. Set this property to zero not to be displayed or to the number of days.
  1. Start –> All Programs –> Accessories –> Command Prompt or Start –>Run –> cmd.
  2. Use the stsadm command to set:
    • stsadm.exe -o setproperty -pn days-to-show-new-icon -pv number_of_days -url [Your Virtual Server’s URL]
SharePoint Team Services Web site

For the SharePoint Team Services Web site you need to use the Owsadm.exe to change the “New Item Display Cutoff” property. Set this property to zero not to be displayed or to the number of days
  1. Start –> All Programs –> Accessories –> Command Prompt or Start –>Run –> cmd.
  2. Use the owsadm command to set:
  3. owsadm.exe -o setproperty -pn NewItemDisplayCutoff -pv number_of_days -p [Your Virtual Server’s Port]
