There are two main types of lists: unordered lists and ordered lists.

​Unordered lists

An unordered list is one in which there is no particular order or hierarchy to the information.

  • Use the bullet style in the editing ribbon.
  • Do not include more than 10 items.


The grocery list had only three items on it: 

  • bread
  • milk
  • coffee

Ordered lists

An ordered list is one in which there is a particular order or hierarchy to the information.

  • Put a number at the beginning of each listed item.
  • Do not include more than 10 items.


The to-do list included several tasks: 

  1. Pick up groceries at lunch.
  2. Put the casserole in the oven at 5 p.m.
  3. Put ice in the ice bucket at 7 p.m.

Style for lists

A list should have an introductory phrase; it should not appear on its own. If desired, you can use a subheading (H3 or H4) for the introductory text.  

  • If the listed items complete the introductory text (ie, altogether make a complete sentence), don’t capitalize first word and do not use periods at end of each item.
  • If each listed item is a complete sentence on its own, capitalize first word of each and put a period at the end of each.
The styles for bullets and numbers is available in the Format Text tab of the editing ribbon. (See also Steps, for a series of steps.) 

Link lists 

A link lists is a special type of list that displays links. It has no introductory phrase. The link list style for the page content area is being developed. The link style for the right margin has been developed; see Links & Buttons
